Fueling the Future with Natural Gas 

 Benefits of Natural Gas
Benefits of natural gas

The benefits of natural gas are easy to see

When you highlight the benefits of natural gas, your customers will thank you for helping them save both energy and money.


  • Natural gas is more affordable. On average, homeowners who use natural gas for their heating, water heating, cooking and clothes drying save $640 per year over all-electric homes. Learn more
  • Natural gas is cleaner and better for the environment. A home that uses natural gas appliances leaves about half the carbon footprint of an all-electric home and releases fewer harmful emissions into the environment.
  • Natural gas is plentiful. There is currently enough natural gas to power our country for more than 100 years, and more sources of natural gas are being discovered. Nearly 2.5 million miles of pipeline bring safe, clean, reliable natural gas to homes and business around the United States.

 Natural Gas Safety
Safe digging


Whether you’re working on a large excavation or simply planting a tree in your yard, natural gas and utility line safety should always be job one—and that starts with calling 8-1-1 to have your utility lines marked. By doing so, you can be certain where your electric, gas, water and other important lines are located as well as avoid causing serious injuries, service interruptions or possibly costly fines for damaged infrastructure. Make the call. It’s easy, and free.

Hurricane readiness

In the event of severe weather such as a hurricane, power outages are likely. Just as CenterPoint Energy has an Emergency Operations Plan (EOP), the company urges customers to have their own emergency plan ready to implement should a hurricane strike.


It is extremely important for every family and business to have their own personal emergency plan, especially customers who rely on electricity for life-sustaining equipment. If your plan is to shelter in place during a storm, CenterPoint Energy encourages customers to have battery-powered radios, enough food and water for several days (one gallon of water per person, per day), necessary medication and a portable generator.

To stay up to date on the most current power outage information, we urge you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter where we post frequent updates during a storm. For more details, please visit
