What is CenterPoint Energy?

CenterPoint Energy is a large energy and home services company that operates across six states in the United States. The company is a Houston-specific electricity supply utility and a natural gas supply utility for more than 3.2 million people in the Southeast and Midwest. The company also offers home services, such as heating and cooling solutions, in Minnesota.

CenterPoint Energy planted its roots in the mid-1800s with an agreement to supply street lamps with natural gas made from oyster shells and coal in coastal, southeast Texas. Throughout the next hundred-or-so years, the company became an electricity utility that generated and sold power to the Houston electricity area. When Texas introduced an energy choice electricity market in 2002, CenterPoint Energy separated its generation of electricity from its delivery.
