PSC Sets Intervention Deadline In Empire Request
JEFFERSON CITY—The Empire District Electric Company has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking approval of demand-side programs under the Missouri Energy Efficiency Investment Act (MEEIA). Empire also seeks authority to establish a Demand Side Management Investment Mechanism (DSIM).
According to the application, Empire seeks Commission approval of a demand-side management portfolio including some of Empire’s existing demand-side programs and four additional programs (a residential high efficiency lighting and appliance program, a residential appliance recycling program, a school energy efficiency kit program and a small business lighting program). Empire also seeks approval to establish a charge on customer bills to recover demand-side management program costs and incentives. This would appear as a separate line-item on the monthly electric bill.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than November 19, 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 service (EFIS).
Individual citizens wishing to comment should contact either the Office of the Public Counsel (Governor Office Building, 200 Madison Street, Suite 650, P.O. Box 2230, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-2230, telephone (866) 922-2959, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
) or the Public Service Commission Staff (P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102, telephone 1-800-392-4211, e-mail email@example.com
). The Office of the Public Counsel is a separate state agency that represents the general public in matters before the Commission.
The Empire District Electric Company serves approximately 148,300 electric customers in Missouri.
