PSC Approves Missouri Gas Energy Request To Adjust Infrastructure Surcharge
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request filed by Missouri Gas Energy (MGE) to adjust the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) on the bills of its natural gas customers. The surcharge first appeared on customer bills in April 2004.
The ISRS adjustment reflects infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company from October 1, 2011 through May 30, 2012. These costs for natural gas pipeline replacements and relocations are not currently included in MGE’s rates. The surcharge change also reflects an adjustment made to three previous MGE ISRS filings.
The current ISRS for residential customers is $0.70 a month. As a result of this filing, the ISRS will be adjusted and residential customers will pay $0.69 a month. The change is expected to take effect in October.
MGE provides natural gas service to approximately 500,000 customers in Missouri.
