PSC Sets Intervention Deadline In Laclede Gas Infrastructure Surcharge Request
JEFFERSON CITY---Laclede Gas Company-Laclede Division (Laclede) has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking to adjust the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) on the bills of its natural gas customers. The surcharge first appeared on customer bills in June 2004.
Laclede seeks the adjustment to reflect infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company since February 1, 2013. These costs for natural gas pipeline replacements and relocations are not currently included in Laclede’s rates.
The current ISRS for residential customers of Laclede is $0.00 a month. The current ISRS was set to zero when the PSC decided Laclede’s last general rate case in June 2013. Residential customers would pay an ISRS of $0.91 a month under Laclede’s proposal.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than February 10, 2014, 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).
Laclede Gas Company-Laclede Division provides natural gas service to approximately 638,000 customers in the City of St. Louis as well as the Missouri counties of St. Louis, St. Charles, Butler, Iron, Franklin, Jefferson, Madison, Crawford, St. Francois and Ste. Genevieve.
