ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Customers of a New Mexico Gas Co. will have a chance to lower their monthly heating bills this winter.
    
The Albuquerque Journal reports the Albuquerque-based utility is offering substantial rebates to homeowners who meet certain criteria.
    
The company says partial reimbursement is available to customers who pad their attics and roofs with additional insulation or install energy-efficient furnaces and water heaters.
    
Company spokeswoman Teala Kail says the assistance is covered by a rate rider that amounts to 1 percent of the average residential monthly bill.
    
Kail says as of last March, 16,000 customers have benefited.
    
She says many more of the 500,000 customers statewide can take advantage of the programs, which have been going on since 2009.
