CenterPoint Energy Mobilizes Rapid Response to Restore Power After Hurricane Beryl

July 08 2024

Following the devastating impact of Hurricane Beryl, CenterPoint Energy has stepped up efforts to rapidly restore power services to affected areas. The storm wreaked havoc throughout CenterPoint's service territories, leaving a total of 2.265 million customers without power, according to a release issued by CenterPoint.

In the early hours after Beryl moved out of the region, CenterPoint swiftly mobilized its crew, both internal and those sourced from mutual assistance, to kickstart the restoration process. As reported by the company on July 8th, 2024, it has already restored power to nearly 285,000 customers by 8 p.m. CT.

According to a recent customer restoration update, CenterPoint expects to have restored power to 1 million affected customers by the end of the day on Wednesday, July 10th. This projection is based on the company's ongoing damage assessment and initial restoration successes.
