February 17 - Media Release from Centerpoint Energy

Screen Shot 2021-02-17 at 4.10.02 PM

As Texas experiences ongoing extreme winter weather, with cold temperatures and the second round of winter precipitation, the statewide power generation emergency continues to cause extended electric outages for CenterPoint Energy customers across its service territory. As power supply conditions allow, power to impacted customers is being restored by CenterPoint Energy in intervals of time on a rotating basis. Customers’ electricity may be on and off periodically.

The possibility remains that customer outages may persist or expand if CenterPoint Energy is directed by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) to reduce electricity on its system. Due to the continued issues with power generators’ ability to produce electricity, CenterPoint Energy’s customers need to be prepared to be without power, potentially for the duration of the generation shortage event, which could last several more days. The company does not generate electricity itself, so the current shortage of power capacity from the grid is not something that CenterPoint Energy directly controls.
