Ameren Customers May See Reduced Rates
JEFFERSON CITY - Ameren Missouri has filed a request with the Missouri Public Service Commission that would reduce rates for its electric customers.
Ameren's request would change the fuel and purchased power adjustment charge (FAC) on customers' bills. Currently, a typical residential electric customer pays an FAC of approximately $4.10 a month. Under Ameren's proposed filing, the cost would drop by approximately $1.13, to $2.97 a month. The proposed changes would take effect in February 2014, according to the Missouri Public Service Commission.
Ameren Missouri said the proposed adjustment to customer rates reflects changes in its fuel and purchased power costs, including transportation and off-system sales revenues from June 2013 through September 2013. The Missouri Public Service Commission said the adjustment also reflects the company's annual FAC true-up and a customer refund ordered by the Commission in July 2013.
Ameren Missouri stated the true-up reflects an under collection of approximately $105,339 from customers.
The Missouri Public Service Commission is accepting applications to intervene and participate in this case until Dec. 22. Applications should be filed with Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-0360.
Ameren Missouri serves approximately 1.2 million electric customers in Missouri.
