CenterPoint Energy is reminding residential customers about Minnesota’s Cold Weather Rule, which protects Minnesotans who may have difficulty paying their heating bill by preventing disconnection of their natural gas service from Oct. 1, 2022, through April 30, 2023.

Under the Cold Weather Rule, customers are required to set up a payment plan with their utility to prevent disconnection of their service. To arrange a payment plan, CenterPoint Energy customers can call 800-245-2377 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday-Friday.
