We have an urgent request: please tell the Oregon Public Utility Commission (OPUC) what you think about NW Natural’s request to increase gas customer rates by $81 million – or an average bill increase of 11.8 percent for residential customers – by submitting a public comment to the OPUC.
NW Natural wants to continue expanding their methane gas infrastructure, increasing executives bonuses and shareholder profits, and spreading pro-gas advertising.
By supporting further growth of the gas industry, this rate hike will increase energy burdens for already struggling Oregon families, worsen the climate crisis, and pollute the air we breathe.
Climate Solutions has joined with a group of partner environmental, climate, environmental justice, and community-led social justice organizations to officially oppose this rate increase. NW Natural and their supporters in the oil and gas industry are doing everything in their power to quash both our complaint and our participation in this public process, so we need your help.
Tell the PUC that more methane gas is a bad investment
Help us protect our air and climate. Urge the Oregon Public Utility Commission to reject NW Natural's proposed rate hike.
