Extreme Winter Weather Creates High Demand for Natural Gas Supply
Recently, our communities faced an unprecedented winter weather event. Throughout this difficult time, CenterPoint Energy’s focus remained on ensuring that our customers had natural gas service by managing the need for natural gas supply in real time. Our natural gas systems performed well.
In preparation for the extremely low temperatures, we took proactive steps to lessen the impact to our customers, including working closely with regulators. We anticipate that this weather event will result in incremental costs for our customers.
At this moment, it is too early to speculate on potential price impacts. Soon, we’ll be able to better quantify the impacts to customer bills.
