 National Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week

Celebrate the spirit of volunteerism

Each April, CenterPoint Energy celebrates National Volunteer Week to highlight the selfless individuals who are committed to strengthening our communities through service. In 2014, CenterPoint Energy employee and retiree volunteers donated 215,000 hours of time toward a variety of nonprofit initiatives that focus on community development, health and human services, and education.
Celebrate the spirit of volunteerism this year by joining us as we give our time to worthy volunteer projects, including March of Dimes’ March for Babies, United Way, blood drives, natural gas safety fairs, holiday programs, Habitat for Humanity, Junior Achievement and education programs.

 Infrastructure Upgrades

CenterPoint Energy has been hard at work systematically improving and modernizing its infrastructure throughout its service territories in order to help maintain safety and reliability. These improvements are considered standard maintenance and upkeep of our system, and will occur on natural gas pipelines and distribution mains that supply natural gas to hundreds of thousands of CenterPoint Energy customers.

The new piping segments and upgrades are installed with the most current construction standards and requirements, and are designed to facilitate a cost-effective, ongoing inspection process required for all natural gas pipelines. To learn more about what you can do to use natural gas safely and efficiently, click here.
