GAP SAVINGS

Customers receiving Energy Assistance may be eligible to receive additional funds through the Gas Affordability Program (GAP), offered by CenterPoint Energy in partnership with the Energy CENTS Coalition.

How GAP works: 

  • GAP helps customers better manage monthly energy costs. Once enrolled in GAP, customers are given a flat monthly amount for their natural gas bill.
  • There is a cap on how much customers have to pay each month. Monthly natural gas payment will not exceed 6 percent of income.
  • GAP can help customers pay past due balances. Customers who have a past due balance, but make monthly GAP payments, will receive funds to help pay off past-due balance and be protected from natural gas service shut-off.

Customers who receive Energy Assistance, are encouraged to apply for GAP today.
