NW Natural announced that the launch of a new bill discount program will arrive next month.

Gas bill discounts of 15% to 40% will be available for customers whose household income is less than 60% of the state median income.

The program was recently approved by the Oregon Public Utility Commission, developed through state legislation and supported by NW Natural, community stakeholders and other investor-owned utilities in the state.
