 + 
 +NW Natural plans to become a carbon-neutral system by 2050.  NW Natural serves over 725,000 utility customers in Oregon and Washington and is a major provider of winter heating for homes and businesses. The utility has been exploring ways to lower greenhouse gas emissions from the gas sector by using the system infrastructure in new ways. 
 + 
 +RNG ("​Renewable Natural Gas") will be a big piece of the puzzle and could become a new significant renewable resource in the region. According to a recent utility press release, “Renewable natural gas is a zero-carbon resource produced from local organic materials like food, agricultural and forestry waste, wastewater, or landfills. The gas can be cleaned and added into the existing natural gas system, where it is fully interchangeable with conventional natural gas." Oregon'​s ground-breaking legislation also supports renewable hydrogen, excess wind, solar, or hydropower that can be converted to renewable hydrogen and blended into the natural gas pipeline system.
