    Technology seems to pervade every aspect of life in the 21st century. However, this abundance doesn’t always trickle down to young students. Atmos Energy donated 20 laptops to a nearby school to assist with their technological advancement.

    James Owens, Safety Manager for Atmos Energy and Jeff Whiting, IT Manager for Atmos Energy delivered the PCs to fifth-grade students at Chapel Hill Academy in Fort Worth. Not only were the students grateful for the donations, but the teachers also expressed their heartfelt appreciation.

    “Thank you very much for bringing these computers to us,” said fifth-grade Gifted and Talented teacher Margie Simpson, “The kids were so excited to know that these are available. We are very grateful for your kindness regarding the donation!”

    Whiting, who is the IT PC donation coordinator for the Mid-Texas Division explains, “These laptops run out of warranty after four years. Because of software licensing, we usually can’t use them past four years but for the most part, they are still working great. We would much rather donate them to people who can use them than have them wind up in the scrap yard.”

    The donation of laptops and other computers isn’t foreign to Atmos Energy. More than 200 machines have been given to volunteer fire departments, police departments and a variety of help agencies and schools.

    For the past 15 years, the Kiwanis Club of Acadiana has cooked more than 18,000 all-you-can-eat pancake meals at their Zydeco Pancake Breakfast. After determining that they needed a little extra help to keep up with the attendees, Atmos Energy employees stepped up to help.

    “This is our major fundraiser for children-focused charities,” says Atmos Energy Operations Manager and Kiwanis member David Raymond. “Our 15-year-old grill needed a major overhaul, and Kiwanis members desperately needed a second grill to keep up with demand.”

    Project Specialist Ray Young and Welder Justin Fontenot created two pancake grills for the Kiwanis Club. After Fontenot fabricated the grills, Young assembled the burner manifolds, fine-tuning the cooking performance. Atmos Energy donated the steel to fabricate the grill in need of extra material.

    Texas Department of Safety troopers took time off the road to spend time educating Atmos Energy employees on changing traffic laws in Bryan, TX.

    Atmos Energy’s Bryan office hosts weekly safety meetings, and on the meeting before Thanksgiving, employees get the opportunity to host special guests. For several years, they have invited the Texas Department of Public Safety to educate their office on changing Texas traffic laws.

    Equipped with a slideshow presentation, the troopers have a question and answer-style format to quiz employees on their knowledge of existing traffic laws. Along with the current statutes, the troopers also include updated information on changing traffic regulations.

    Since employees spend many hours each year behind the wheel of company and personal vehicles, they find it to be educational for both professional, as well as personal lives. This presentation contributes to our goal of being the safest, most reliable provider of natural gas.

    Relationships with first responders have always been important to Atmos Energy. In many ways, we work towards the same goal: safety for the communities we serve. Our Service Center in Garland, Texas sponsored a luncheon honoring first responders and city officials in Sachse, Rowlett and Garland.

    “A servant heart is one of our first responders’ greatest attributes,” says Manager of Public Affairs Eva Hummel, who was the ceremony emcee. “During the holidays, they sponsor toy, clothing and canned food drives. At our luncheon, we showed appreciation for their great work by making a $1,000 donation to each fire and police department in Sachse, Garland and Rowlett.” 

    Atmos Energy employees prepared lunch on the Big Tex cooker for more than 250 first responders. Participating were fire and police chiefs and captains, their assistants, mayors, city managers, city council members and chamber officials. 

    For those firefighters and police officials unable to attend because they were on duty, an Atmos Energy team delivered meals to each station. On-duty policemen drove by the office and picked up a to-go meal. For more information on how Atmos Energy is furthering connections with first responders, visit this page.

    Everyone tries to stay as warm as possible after winter weather hits. When temperatures go down, natural gas bills typically go up. Customers can stay ahead of higher bills with the help of Atmos Energy’s budget billing. Through this program, natural gas bills will level out throughout the year, making managing household budgets in the winter a little easier.

    Budget billing is a free program that calculates your monthly bill based on a rolling 12-month average of billing history, excluding any miscellaneous fees such as service orders.  It is not a discount program, but it can help families and customers of all income levels. By reducing the impact of seasonal usage changes, monthly payments are more consistent.

    Customers can sign up for budget billing online through the Atmos Energy Account Center – or call Atmos Energy at 1.888.286.6700. Learn more about how to conserve energy and lower monthly bills by clicking here

    Any age is a good age to learn about the safety and benefits of natural gas. Through a partnership with the Junior Achievement of Dallas, Atmos Energy employees are helping to educate sixth-grade students about natural gas and important life skills.

    Several employees participated in the grand opening of JA BizTown, a simulated city experience that is located within the Gilbreath Reed Career and Tech Center in Garland, TX. This program allows students to connect the dots between classroom learning and life outside of school. Atmos Energy’s role at JA BizTown is to teach students about the role of natural gas in everyday life, careers in the industry and most importantly, understanding how to be safe around natural gas.

    In addition to the employees in attendance, Gus the Gopher made an appearance to promote safe digging in communities. Calling 811 in advance of any excavation ensures that underground utility-owned lines are marked with flags to minimize the chance of damage to a natural gas line.

    COLORADO - Atmos Energy customers have a new tool at their fingertips to reduce energy use and lower utility bills. The Atmos Energy Home Energy Report (HER) is now available to tens of thousands of customers throughout Colorado.

    “We pride ourselves on providing outstanding service to our customers,” Atmos Energy’s Colorado-Kansas Manager of Sales Kevin Kerrigan says. “That’s why we teamed up with a Boulder-based company, to launch this new energy efficiency program.”

    Atmos Energy Introduces Energy Efficiency Program to Cut Energy Use and Utility Bills  

    More than 45,000 customers across Colorado will receive personalized HER letters once a month during the winters of 2017, 2018 and 2019. In order to compare energy use to previous years, customers selected for the program must have at least 13 months of natural gas consumption history. 

    “The HER letters compare the customer’s gas usage to an energy efficient home and to a similar home in the same climate,” says Kerrigan. “If customers see that they are using more natural gas than a neighbor in a similar home, we are hoping they will follow the energy saving tips we provide to them resulting in a reduction of energy consumption.”

    For more information on Atmos Energy’s advice on how to save energy in your home, you can view our energy saving tips here.
