Many residents may be eligible for a PTC rebate

Many Coloradans may be eligible for the Colorado Property Tax/Rent/Heat Credit program, commonly known as the "PTC Rebate," which serves low-income seniors and disabled individuals, according to a Department of Revenue news release.

Atmos Energy encourages people to 'share the warmth'

Atmos Energy is encouraging customers to participate in the utility's Sharing the Warmth program, which is designed to supplement payments made by elderly, disabled or low-income customers who would otherwise be unable to pay the full cost of heating their home.

"It's as easy as rounding-up the pennies on your natural gas bill," Atmos Energy Director of Energy Assistance Dan Alderson said. "That excess change goes straight into our Sharing the Warmth program, which can then be distributed to low-income residents this winter."

To donate, check the voluntary donation box on the back of your gas bill or call 1-888-286-6700 to make your donation via the phone. Visit for more details.
