Colorado Natural Gas is asking our customers in Fairplay, Blue River, Breckenridge, Alma, and Alma Junction to help our friends and neighbors by implementing conservation efforts due to Boulder County wildfires.


Dear Valued Customers, The Boulder County wildfires have impacted the natural gas infrastructure around the state and have the potential to impact gas supply to your community. We are kindly asking everyone to do their part in conserving their energy usage by turning down their thermostats a few degrees.

In addition to lowering thermostats, here are some easy ways for you to conserve:

  • Let the sunlight in and keep the cold out - Open blinds to take advantage of the sun's warmth during the day but close them at night to insulate against the cold air outside.
  • Make sure exterior doors are fully closed - A major source of a home’s heat loss is from exterior doors that are left cracked open or not latched.
  • Use fans to your advantage - During colder months, run ceiling fans clockwise, so the warm air near the ceiling is forced down.
  • Keep your oven's heat where it belongs - Use your oven light or timer to avoid opening it often while you cook; each time the door is opened even for just a few seconds, the temperature drops 25 degrees.

Thank you for doing your part! We apologize for any inconvenience and thank customers for all your natural gas conservation efforts.

Stay warm and stay safe.
