Enhance your outdoor living spaces

Outdoor Entertaining with Natural GasHelp customers make the most out of their backyards, patios, poolsides or front porches with efficient, affordable and always available natural gas appliances.

When customers choose natural gas to fuel their outdoor space needs for relaxing or entertaining, they can forget about lugging around heavy propane tanks or disposing of messy ashes from a traditional grill or fireplace bowl. Natural gas is always available, costs less to use and is a reliable source of fuel even during a power outage.

For great ideas on how your customers can incorporate natural gas into their backyard spaces, check out this short video.

Gas Is Better. 

Call 811 before you dig



Save money, enjoy greater comfort and help the environment.

Homeowners who choose natural gas understand the importance of receiving the best value for their household energy dollar. Environmentally natural gas appliances offer excellent energy-efficiency benefits that pay big dividends in lower energy costs and greater comfort for years to come.


Customers and trade allies can learn more about the many benefits of natural gas appliances by watching this video from the American Gas Foundation.


 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 Preparation

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.
