Average Monthly Billing
Even out the highs and lows of your gas bill

Average Monthly BillingYou can smooth out winter billing peaks when you enroll in CenterPoint Energy's Average Monthly Billing plan. This payment plan spreads your natural gas costs throughout a 12-month period so you don’t have substantially higher bills in the winter and can anticipate more even billing throughout the year. Average Monthly Billing amounts will vary slightly from month to month, allowing the program to adjust for changes in the cost of gas and usage patterns. You will still pay for the natural gas you use, but by spreading out your costs, your payments become more manageable.

To enroll online, or to view the approximate amount your Average Monthly Billing payment will be, simply register for or sign into My Account and then choose "Enroll in Average Monthly Billing" under "More billing and payment options." Enroll today!

 Carbon Monoxide Safety

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas that is colorless, odorless and tasteless. CO can be produced by any fuel-burning appliance in your home, so it’s important to have your appliances checked annually by a qualified technician, especially before the start of the heating season.
