Whole Home New Construction Program

No-cost program promotes energy efficiency

CenterPoint Energy’s Whole Home New Construction Program is your pathway to energy efficient construction. The program uses innovative energy modeling software to evaluate energy use and provides three detailed reports to maximize the energy-saving potential of new home construction and increase customer satisfaction.

  • Builder participation fees are 100 percent covered by CenterPoint Energy
  • Scheduling accommodates your building timeline
  • Energy modeling software evaluates a host of factors (e.g., slab, foundation, water heater, heating, air conditioning, and more)
  • Three onsite inspections and written reports (framing site visit, insulation visit, final testing site visit) conducted by an expert building science consultant keep track of best practices and potential building code issues.

 Natural Gas Pricing

New residential customer rates effective Dec. 1, 2014
In August 2013, CenterPoint Energy filed a request with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) to change its rates for utility distribution service. The filing sought to increase the company’s annual revenues by $44.3 million, or about 5 percent annually. New rates begin December 1, 2014, as approved by the MPUC.


The rate changes affect individual monthly bills differently depending on the amount of natural gas used and customer’s rate class.  The effect on an average residential customer’s bil will be an increase of about $2.85 per month, or $34 per year.  Bills will also vary because the wholesale cost of natural gas changes each month.


State law allowed CenterPoint Energy to collect interim (temporary) rates while the MPUC considered the rate increase request.  AS  the final rate increase is less than the interim rate increase, CenterPoint Energy will refund the difference, with interest, beginning December 2014.  A typical residential customer’s refund will be about $11.
