Public hearing set on electric rate case

January 8th, 2011 in News

The Missouri Public Service Commission will hold a public hearing in March in an electric rate case filed by Ameren Missouri.

The hearing will be March 2 at the Missouri Public Service Commission, Governor Office Building, Room 310, 200 Madison St. A PSC staff public information/question and answer session will start at 11:30 a.m., with the local public hearing and the taking of sworn testimony to follow.

On Sept. 3, Ameren Missouri filed an electric rate case with the Missouri Public Service Commission, seeking to increase annual electric operating revenues by approximately $263 million. For the average residential customer, the proposed increase would be approximately $9.30.

Ameren Missouri's filing also includes a request to continue its fuel-adjustment clause that reflects changes in the cost of fuel used to generate electricity on customers' bills through a separately identified surcharge or credit outside a general rate case.
