Making natural gas infrastructure more efficient and cleaner in the Northwest

As a nation, we have set a goal of fighting climate change to preserve and protect our planet. To be “carbon neutral” by 2050, it’s crucial to have a robust, leak-free gas distribution system to complement and supplement renewable energy sources and exploit new forms of zero-carbon and carbon-negative gases, such as renewable natural gas […]

“In the beautiful Pacific Northwest, summer is best for spending time with family and friends in your backyard around a warm fire with dinner sizzling on the grill.

Michelle Palacios, Executive Director of Oregon Hop Growers Association

“The Pacific Northwest is home to some of the best breweries in the world. That wouldn’t be the case without our hops and natural gas.

“Nearly 40% of energy used in Pacific Northwest buildings is from natural gas. Transferring to all-electric would result in at least a 15% increase in grid demand, which would result in rolling brownouts.

Letters: Natural gas should be part of our future

By David Burger of Bend I am one of the thousands of union workers who rely on natural gas not only to cook or heat my home, but also for my livelihood. The natural gas industry employs nearly 2 million Americans. And it’s not just those of us laying the pipes or installing hookups in […]

Letters: Limiting natural gas is an inefficient option

By Scott Nedry, Fosseen’s Home and Hearth I found a recent op-ed celebrating limitations on natural gas in Washington state concerning. Nearly 70% of people prefer natural gas when heating their homes and more than 50% of the Pacific Northwest utilizes natural gas to provide efficient heating. As winter approaches, we rely even more on our […]
