Ameren seeks rate increase

JEFFERSON CITY - Union Electric Company (doing business as Ameren Missouri) has filed a request with the Missouri Public Service Commission to adjust the fuel and purchased power adjustment charge (FAC) on the bills of its electric customers.

Ameren has made two filings.

In its first filing (Case No. ER-2018-0255), Ameren proposes to adjust the FAC to reflect changes in its fuel and purchased power costs, net off-system sales revenues and associated transportation experienced during the four month period of October 2017 through January 2018.

The second case is Amerenís true-up filing (Case No. ER-2018-0256).

As a result of these two filings, the FAC for a typical residential customer would increase by approximately $2.07 a month, from approximately $0.27 a month to approximately $2.34 a month.

The proposed change would take effect with the June 2018 billing month.

Applications to intervene and participate in these cases must be filed no later than April 6, 2018, with the Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102, or by using the Commissionís Electronic Filing and Information Service (EFIS) at .
