Share the Warmth - This heating bill assistance program is offered to Atmos Energy customers, and it can help the elderly, low income, the disabled and families and individuals in need to keep their homes warm during the winter. The program is created by donations from customers, businesses, and Atmos. The Atmos Share the Warmth program can help people pay heating bills during a difficult period in their lives.
How the program works is Atmos Energy works with numerous non-profits and community energy-assistance agencies across Colorado. These nonprofit charities and organizations will accept applications from people and families that need assistance with paying their bills. The organizations will share the available funds according to their established assistance program guidelines.
Rebates and conservation programs - Atmos Energy is working with other gas utility companies across Colorado to provide energy-efficiency and conservation programs like rebates on heating and cooling equipment, low-cost energy audits and offers for income-qualified customers.
