ORDER CONSOLIDATING CASES

 

Issue Date:  April 9, 2013                                                  Effective Date: April 9, 2013

On January 30, 2013, Earth Island Institute d/b/a Renew Missouri and several other organizations filed separate complaints against Union Electric Company, d/b/a Ameren Missouri and The Empire District Electric Company.  On April 8, the parties jointly filed a common procedural schedule for these two complaints along with a request that the cases be consolidated.  The complaints against the two electric utilities share similar issues and allegations and it is appropriate to consolidate the cases to avoid duplication of effort and confusion.  Therefore, the Commission will consolidate the two cases for all purposes. 

THE COMMISSION ORDERS THAT:

1.  File No. EC-2013-0378 is consolidated into File No. EC-2013-0377. 

2.  All future filings shall be made in File No. EC-2013-0377.

3.  This order shall become effective upon issuance.

BY THE COMMISSION
