Natural gas for your business
When you choose natural gas for your operation’s facilities and transportation, you not only save energy, you can also save money for years to come.

Natural gas costs about half as much as other fuels and is the best choice for your budget. It’s simply a better value, especially when considering the efficiency of the equipment. 


With reliable natural gas service, there’s no need to worry about surprise power outages that may create disruptions. Natural gas equipment is available for nearly every application with a wide range of benefits.


Natural gas is the right choice for a cleaner tomorrow. As a primary fuel that can be used in its natural state rather than undergoing a pollution-producing, energy-wasting conversion process, natural gas leaves about half the carbon footprint than electricity.

 Carbon Monoxide Safety

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas that is colorless, odorless, tasteless and non-irritating. Any fuel-burning equipment or appliance has the potential to produce CO, and annual check-ups of these appliances help ensure proper and safe operation.

If you, your employees or customers are in a room with operating gas equipment and experience a headache, followed by dizziness and nausea, you may be experiencing CO poisoning. Get fresh air immediately, and call CenterPoint Energy. Click here to learn more about CO safety.
