CenterPoint Energy Seeking Three Month Rate Hike to repair Crippled Power Plant

If you pay a bill from CenterPoint Energy, you will pay more beginning in February, if CenterPoint gets its way.

They’ve asked the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to be able to increase bills by $13.20 per month for three months to help pay for a broken coal plant.

The Colley Number 3 unit has been out of order since June and CenterPoint has had to buy energy from other places to supply power.
