Pay your CenterPoint Energy bill or pay the price! That is what the utility company is telling customers. Starting this August, CenterPoint Energy will end its ban on discontinuing service to residents who do not pay their utility bill. If you do not pay your bill, your service will be disconnected. If you are unable to pay due to financial hardship resulting from COVID-19, there is help available. As part of CenterPoint Energy’s COVID relief plan, options are available to help customers pay for their home energy costs. To review payment plan options or energy bill pay assistance, click HERE or call CenterPoint Energy customer service at 800-245-2377.
