PSC Sets Intervention Deadline In Ameren Missouri Case
JEFFERSON CITY---Union Electric Company d/b/a Ameren Missouri has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking Commission authority to sell coal, and lease a small portion of its property at its Labadie Energy Center. Ameren Missouri’s application states this is part of a program to utilize refined coal in order to lower costs and reduce emissions.
According to the application, Ameren Missouri proposes to sell some coal from the coal pile at its Labadie Energy Center to Larkwood Energy, LLC (Larkwood). Larkwood, according to the application, will refine the coal using a process designed to reduce emissions from the coal, and then resell the coal back to Ameren Missouri at the same price for use at the plant. In addition, Ameren Missouri seeks authority to lease a small portion of its plant site to Larkwood so that Larkwood can place coal refinement facilities on the site during the term of the transaction.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than December 4, 2013, with the Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102, or by using the Commission’s Electronic Filing and Information System (EFIS).
Ameren Missouri provides electric service to approximately 1.2 million electric customers in Missouri.
