(Reuters) - More than 150,000 homes and businesses in Texas were still without power on Tuesday evening as utilities started restoring service faster than Tropical Storm Nicholas caused new outages, according to local utilities.

That is down from a peak of 529,000 customers out in Texas on Tuesday morning.

Nicholas was downgraded to a "tropical depression" late Tuesday, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. Storm surge was expected to ebb now, the NHC said.

Texas energy company CenterPoint Energy Inc (NYSE:CNP), the company with the most outages so far, had about 110,442 customers without power in the Houston area Tuesday evening, down from a peak of around 454,000 earlier in the day.

The following table lists major outages by utility, including about 87,000 outages in Louisiana left from Hurricane Ida over two weeks ago since Nicholas is expected to move from Texas to Louisiana on Wednesday:
