Important information



You will need the services of an electrician and/or plumber to prepare your property before we can perform the relocation or resizing. These expenses are in addition to the cost to relocate/resize service and are the customer's responsibility. It is important that you meet with your contractor before, during and after completing the application to ensure your project is in-line with CenterPoint Energy's requirements and local/state regulations.


Meter location

Properly marking the location of your new meter is important to ensuring a smooth installation. Use our meter location guide for assistance when relocating your meter.


"Site-ready" date

The date that your site is ready determines when we can begin the actual relocation or resizing work. The site is ready when the following criteria have been met:

  • Within 6" of final grade
  • Clear path for service (approximately 10' wide)
  • Meter location(s) meets code and is marked View meter location guide
  • All private facilities are located and marked. (You, as the property owner, are responsible for locating and marking all existing utility and septic facilities using your state's 811 service.)
  • Inspection requirements have been met. see cities & counties with required inspections

Once the site is ready, allow 3 business days for locates and 10 business days for construction to be complete. Allow 3 business days for the meter(s) to be installed. If your Site Ready Date changes, please contact us at newservice@CenterPointEnergy.com or 800-990-1930.
