CenterPoint Energy Rate Increase Approval

“Minnesota utility regulators, on last Thursday, approved a rate increase for the state’s largest natural gas supplier, CenterPoint Energy, & ordered a change in how its customers are billed.  The permanent rate increase for the company’s 823,000 Minnesota customers is less than the 4.9% interim increase authorized last October.   As a result, most customers will see a small refund on bills later this year.”
