Businesses benefit as Smart Energy participants.

Smart Energy Circle Member

NW Natural business customers can choose to address all or part of the carbon emissions associated with their natural gas use through projects that reduce, or prevent the release of, greenhouse gases.

If you choose to enroll your business at the 100% level, we'll welcome you into the Smart Energy Circle where you can enjoy additional perks. As a Circle member, your monthly cost will be a fixed amount based on the past 12 months’ use and you may be eligible to receive exclusive marketing benefits, which may include:*

  • Listing on our Smart Energy Circle web page.
  • Window decals and frameable certificates for display.
  • Access to the Smart Energy Circle logo for use in your own sales and marketing materials.

You can also choose a fixed monthly rate that addresses a percentage of your business' natural gas use. The minimum to participate is $10 a month, and each $1 increment provides an additional reduction of CO2 dependent on your business location.

* Enrollment benefits are subject to change. NW Natural reserves the right to terminate or revoke such benefits when participation ends.
