Natural gas water heaters: Your best energy value

Natural Gas Water HeatersWhen discussing water heating options with customers, be sure to tell them about the benefits of natural gas water heaters. From cleaning up before a family meal, to supplying the needs of a busy restaurant to ensuring schools and hospitals have the hot water they need, natural gas water heaters are the preferred option for their performance, safety, reliability and operating costs.

Water heated by a natural gas water heater is also less expensive than water heated by an electric model. In fact, natural gas water heaters recover much faster and at half the cost of an electric water heater.  Learn more

Natural Gas Vehicles are fueling the future

Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) run cleaner and cost less to operate than gasoline, diesel or other alternative fueled vehicles.


With more than 135,000 NGVS on U.S. roads today and 115.2 million world-wide, more and more businesses and consumers are turning to NGVs as the solution to their needs for clean, cost-effective transportation solutions. Learn more.

 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
