Natural gas rates going down for Washington customers   


Post by Debbie Simock

Starting tomorrow, natural gas rates for our Washington customers will decrease by two percent, or $1.66 a month, as part of the annual true-up of our energy efficiency rebate and incentive programs. You can read more about the decrease in the news release issued today by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) on their approval of our request.

As part of our energy efficiency program true-up in Idaho, natural gas and electric customers could also see a decrease in their rates effective August 1, if the Idaho Public Utilities Commission approves our request.

So, why do we provide rebates to help customers use less of our product? Making efficiency improvements is a smart choice that helps customers reduce their energy use and reduce the amount of future energy generation required to meet growing energy needs.

If you want to find out if any of the energy efficiency improvements you’re planning will qualify for an Avista rebate, visit us at
