This proposed grant seeks to create a certification program that would allow distribution companies to sell their residential and commercial customers natural gas that has met minimum environmental standards throughout its life cycle, including its extraction. Funding for the first phase of this project, headed by the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Northwest Natural Gas Distribution Company, would support efforts to set the standards and bring in more natural gas distribution companies. The project’s second phase (not funded through this grant) would finalize standards, seek buy-in from gas utilities, and involve designing a mechanism to track gas much like Renewable Energy Certificates.
