Fuel Adjustment Charge to Change for Liberty Electric Customers
JEFFERSON CITY---Electric customers of The Empire District Electric Company d/b/a Liberty (Liberty) will see a change in the fuel adjustment clause (FAC) charge on their electric bills effective December 1, 2023.
Liberty made two filings. In its first filing (Case No. ER-2024-0118), Liberty sought to adjust the FAC charge to reflect actual energy costs incurred by the Company during the six-month period March 2023 through August 2023. The second filing was Liberty’s true-up filing (Case No. EO-2024-0119).
For a residential customer using 1,000 kWh (1,000 kilowatt-hours) of electricity a month, the FAC will decrease by approximately $2.17 a month.
Liberty serves approximately 161,500 electric customers in the Missouri counties of Barry, Barton, Cedar, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Greene, Hickory, Jasper, Lawrence, McDonald, Newton, Polk, St. Clair, Stone and Taney.
