Atmos Energy Recognized as Top Utility Company

Messenger-Inquirer readers bestow “Platinum” distinction on the natural gas distributor

The Messenger-Inquirer, a leading regional newspaper in Kentucky, recently announced its 11th annual Reader’s Choice Awards and recognized Atmos Energy as the area’s top utility company. Since 2008, the Messenger-Inquirer has polled readers for their opinion on the best local businesses in a variety of categories. After more than 11,000 Kentuckians cast votes to award platinum, gold and silver level distinctions this year, Atmos Energy received platinum “Utility Company” recognition in the Home & Business division.

“Voting for your favorite restaurant, shop or car dealership is fun, but it is clear that everyone took the time to vote because they care,” said Mike Weafer, publisher of the Messenger-Inquirer. “This is the first time a category for utility companies was included in the awards, so it speaks volumes that Atmos Energy received platinum distinction right out of the gate.”

In addition to providing exceptional customer service, Atmos Energy excels as a community partner in the Owensboro region by supporting many non-profits with financial contributions, energy assistance programs and community grilling events.  The team also gives back to the community with a warm spirit of volunteering – from coaching tee ball to serving on community boards, Atmos Energy employees are always eager to contribute. 

“Atmos Energy has been providing safe, reliable and clean natural gas to Kentucky for more than 90 years, so our roots in Owensboro run deep and we are honored to be named the region’s best,” said Kay Coomes, Atmos Energy Kentucky-Mid States Division manager of public affairs. “We are so appreciative of our customers and communities, and we thank everyone for their vote!”
