Houston-based CenterPoint told the Star Tribune that the company needs more rate hikes than in the past. The company has many buried pipelines built from the 1940s through the 1960s.
CenterPoint last sought higher Minnesota rates in 2008. It has a request before the Public Utilities Commission for a slightly higher permanent hike.
