Cascade Natural Gas offers a variety of incentives to residential customers for including energy efficiency measures in new homes in Washington and Oregon. Incentives are available directly from Cascade Natural Gas in Washington and apply to residential customers who heat homes or water primarily with natural gas. For new homes, two options are offered: (1) Energy Star Whole Homes Incentives and Upgrades, or (2) New Construction Stand-Alone Incentives. Energy Star Whole Homes Incentives cannot be combined with most other energy efficiency incentives offered. For more information, look at the guidelines on the Cascade Natural Gas web site.
