What is CenterPoint Energy?
Based in Houston, CenterPoint Energy is a transmission and distribution utility (TDU) for Texas. Along with electricity transmission, it offers natural gas distribution, and energy services operations. The company has been through a number of names during its more than 140 years in business. CenterPoint employs about 9,600 people across the nation.
In February 2019, CenterPoint Energy closed on its merger with Vectren. That action brought the company’s reach to 7 million natural gas and electric customers in eight states: Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Texas.
