Atmos Energy and Greeley Furnace Company in partnership with Energy Outreach Colorado have installed 32 natural gas furnace units at Hope Apartments in Greeley.
The apartments, which are part of the Greeley Center for Independence, provide housing for handicapped residents, 60 percent of whom use wheelchairs. The natural gas furnace units each have 95 percent high-efficiency.
The project is part of Atmos Energy’s Excess Is Out program to help customers reduce their natural gas consumption and lower their monthly gas bills. The program also helps the environment by encouraging customers to install energy-efficiency measures that cut carbon dioxide emissions.
This is a win-win for everyone,¬Ě Ben Hitchcock, owner of Greeley Furnace, said in a prepared statement. The program provides for lower utility bills for the Hope residents, helps our local businesses and saves the apartment complex money in the future through lower maintenance bills.¬Ě¬†(View Article)
