Water conservation

The best way your customers can reduce their energy use and save money for water heating is simply to use less hot water. Today’s natural gas water heaters represent an extraordinary value particularly when it comes to conserving energy.

The following helpful conservation tips can help your customers save money on their energy bill:

  • Install easy-to-install low flow showerheads and faucet aerators.
  • Consider replacing an aging water heater before it leaks with a high-efficiency model.
  • Turn the water heater temperature to the lowest setting comfortable. For most people, 120 F is sufficient and safe.

 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.

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
