Texas Medical Center to get $200M energy systems upgrade from CenterPoint

CenterPoint Spending $200M to Bolster Texas Medical Center’s Energy System

As part of the company’s 10-year capital investment plan, CenterPoint Energy has announced its commitment to invest in and harden electric infrastructure in the Texas Medical Center (TMC) area of Houston. CenterPoint Energy’s hopes the $200 million investment will strengthen the safety, reliability and resiliency of its electric system and help reduce the impact of severe weather events on customers. The investments will consist of a new substation, several system-hardening projects benefiting the area, and reinforced transmission and distribution lines and electric equipment. These projects are expected to be completed by 2025.  

CenterPoint’s Lynne Wilson added, “The Texas Medical Center is a cornerstone of our great city, as it is the largest medical complex in the world. As the TMC and surrounding areas continue to expand, we are committed to supporting the millions of patients who visit these important facilities to have reliable and resilient electric service.”
