CenterPoint Energy's utility partners in Ike restoration

Over the years, CenterPoint Energy crews have restored power to hundreds of thousands of customers across the country who have been left in the dark following severe weather. Now, the company has called on its colleagues in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, which left 2.1 million customers without power, the largest outage in CenterPoint Energy's more than 130-year history.

Twelve thousand line mechanics, tree trimmers and additional personnel from over 70 companies are in Houston to aid in the recovery effort. More than 30 states (including Texas, Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia) as well Canada have sent workers to help,.
