Get the details on this year's rates.

New rates take effect November 1, 2021.

Each fall, NW Natural files for rate changes, based primarily on the wholesale cost of natural gas, plus some annual adjustments for ongoing agreements with the commissions. These adjustments vary based on different use patterns by customer class. Variations between Oregon and Washington are caused by differences in rate structures.

Customers can get more information by calling the Rates and Regulatory Department at 503-610-7330.

Oregon

Oregon rates

On September 15, 2021, NW Natural filed its Purchased Gas Adjustment (PGA) with
the Public Utility Commission of Oregon for a rate increase of about $7.50 a month
in residential rates for customers using an average of 54 therms per month. Small-commercial rates will increase by about $36.21 a month for customers using an average of 242 therms per month.

This year’s adjustment takes into account economy-wide supply and demand impacts during the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with higher prices experienced during last winter's heating season.

If approved, Oregon customers will see new rates on monthly bills starting on November 1, 2021.


Washington

Washington rates

On September 13, 2021, NW Natural filed its PGA with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (WUTC) for a rate change. If approved as initially filed, residential rates will increase by about $6.34 a month for customers using an average of 57 therms per month. Small-commercial rates will increase by about $25.93 a month for customers using an average of 235 therms per month.

This year’s adjustment takes into account economy-wide supply and demand impacts during the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with higher prices experienced during last winter's heating season.

Rates will be further impacted by a separate NW Natural general rate case filed with the WUTC earlier this year. If approved, Washington customers can expect to see the combined effect in new rates starting as early as November 1, 2021.
