CenterPoint Energy continues to suspend disconnections of natural gas service for nonpayment during the coronavirus crisis.
The assistance will help thousands of struggling residents who’ve lost their jobs or have had their pay cut because of the economic fallout of the pandemic. Another program was launched in Texas last week to help out-of-work residents in the deregulated parts of the state cover a portion of their electricity bills.
Residential and small business customers of CenterPoint who can’t pay their bills should contact the company to discuss payment assistance or extensions for the balance owed, company spokeswoman Alicia Dixon said. Customers can call the number on their CenterPoint gas bill or visit the company’s website.
