About CenterPoint Energy Texas
How do I switch to CenterPoint electricity?
Moving to the CenterPoint area? Switching electric companies in Houston is simple and takes anywhere from 10-20 minutes over the phone. Enrolling for an energy plan online is a popular option as it is faster.
After choosing a rate plan, your new electric company works directly with CenterPoint to turn on your power. There’s no need to contact your old provider to make the change. However, make sure you’ve paid your final bill or you’ll be issued a switch hold which will delay your connection.
Who do I contact if my lights go out in Houston?
Storms, wildlife, fallen tree limbs and damaged equipment are just some of the causes of power outages. If you live in the Houston area and your power is out, contact CenterPoint Energy customer service by phone at 713-207-2222 or online.
