At the order of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, CenterPoint Energy Houston Electric said in an updated September 4 market notice that it is turning off power to approximately 2,700 residential premises included in the Mayor’s mandatory evacuation order (south of Interstate 10, west of Gessner Road, north of Briar Forest Drive and east of the Addicks and Barker reservoirs).
The City of Houston is providing CEHE the addresses of premises that are flooded. This order does not apply to premises that have not been impacted by flooding.
CEHE has begun the process of disconnecting these premises either remotely or in the field.
Depending on the method used to disconnect each premise, CEHE's system may or may not generate a 650_04.
CEHE is in the process of distributing lists to each CR of their affected ESI-IDs, it said in an updated market notice issued on September 4
CEHE will restore power when the City of Houston authorizes it to do so.
CEHE will not accept 814_03 Move-in or 650 reconnection transactions on these premises as long as the order is in effect.
If a customer within the evacuation area was disconnected but is not flooded, the customer should call CenterPoint Energy, at a specific number provided in the market notice, to arrange for reconnection, CEHE said in the market notice
