Choose the energy assessment that best fits your home and needs. Assessments are open to customers with:

  • A combination of natural gas and electric, or solely electric service, from CenterPoint Energy
    • If a customer has only electric service through CenterPoint Energy, their primary heating fuel must be electricity
  • Homes that are more than five years old
  • Homes that have NOT participated in an assessment in the last three years
  • Customers must meet income guidelines based on household size in order to be eligible
  • Customers who receive benefits from SNAP, LIHEAP, WIC, Welfare, and/or Section 8 are automatically eligible

As part of the assessment, an energy efficiency technician will perform a walkthrough to understand how your home and appliances use energy, and you may even receive energy-saving products on the spot! Upon completion of the assessment, the technician will give you a personalized home energy report with an action plan for additional energy-saving efforts for your home.
