          The Missouri Public Service Commission is granting the Application to Intervene out of Time of the Missouri Industrial Energy Consumers (“motion”).

          By order dated February 19, the Commission set the deadline for filing an application for intervention at March 1.[1]  The Missouri Industrial Energy Consumers filed the motion on March 13.  Staff filed a response supporting the motion on March 18.

          The motion is subject to the Commission’s regulation 4 CSR 240-2.075(3), which provides:

(3) The commission may grant a motion to intervene . . . if—



(A) The proposed intervenor . . . has an interest which is different from that of the general public and which may be adversely affected by a final order arising from the case; or


(B) Granting the proposed intervention would serve the public interest.


*         *         *


(10) Motions to intervene . . . after the intervention date may be granted upon a showing of good cause. Any motion so filed must include a definitive statement whether or not the entity seeking intervention or to be added as a new member accepts the record established in that case, including the requirements of any orders of the commission, as of the date the motion is filed.


The motion meets those standards, except as to the last sentence, but there is no record and the only order is the scheduling order.  The motion is the subject of no opposition.  Therefore, the Commission will grant the motion. 

          The Commission orders that:

1.     The Application to Intervene out of Time of the Missouri Industrial Energy Consumers is granted.

2.     This order is effective immediately upon issuance.
