NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC OF A TEMPORARY WAIVER OF TARIFF PROVISIONS BY ATMOS ENERGY CORPORATION CASE NO. PUR-2020-00057 On August 13, 2021, Atmos Energy Corporation ("Atmos Energy" or "Company") filed a Motion with the State Corporation Commission ("Commission") for a temporary waiver of the requirement in the Company's Tariff that states that "no Customer shall receive two estimated bills in succession." Atmos Energy requested a waiver of this requirement until the end of the calendar year so that it can follow social distancing guidelines and reduce the community spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, and protect the health and safety of its employees and customers. Additionally, granting the waiver until the end of the calendar year should allow Atmos Energy to complete its transition to wireless meter reading devices (which enable the Company to obtain meter readings wirelessly without being physically present at a customer's premises) in the Company's service territory. The Commission previously granted a similar temporary waiver of this tariff requirement on April 3, 2020. On September 1, 2021, the Commission issued an Order Granting Waiver in which it granted Atmos Energy's request for a temporary waiver. The Order Granting Waiver states that the temporary waiver "is granted until the end of calendar year 2021." Copies of Atmos Energy's Petition and the Commission's Order Granting Waiver may be obtained by submitting a written request by mail or e-mail to counsel for the Company, James G. Ritter, Esquire, Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, 951 East Byrd Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219, ritterj@HuntonAK.com. The Company may provide the documents by electronic means. Interested persons may also download unofficial copies of the Petition and other documents filed in this case from the Commission's website: http://www.scc.virginia.gov/case. Further, copies of the Commission's Order Granting Waiver may be obtained at the Company's website: https://www.atmosenergy.com/utility-operationsrates/tariffs-virginia/virginia.
