Live the good life with natural gas at home.
The benefits of natural gas touch all aspects of your life. You save money, so paying bills feels a little easier. You save time, because efficient gas appliances help daily routines like laundry and cooking go faster. What's left is more of what you need to create a home you love, one that welcomes you with warm memories every time you walk through the door.
Even in this period of high inflation and increased commodity costs, we believe NW Natural customers will be paying just slightly more than they did 15 years ago for their natural gas bills based on our preliminary estimates. While nationally, the low cost of natural gas has saved families a total of $143 billion over 10 years. 1American Gas Association.
Estimated annual operating cost to heat a home in Portland./*The estimated annual heating operating costs are based on inputs of a 1980, 2,000 square-foot, single-family home with a finished basement, in Portland. Electricity provided by Portland General Electric. Estimates of annual energy costs are provided to illustrate possible savings only — individual customer’s circumstances and actual savings may vary.

All results are only estimates of potential operating costs and may be different from actual usage or actual bill amounts. Other variables may impact your actual heating costs.
