Infrastructure Surcharge to Change for Spire West Customers
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a change in the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) for Spire West customers (formerly Laclede Gas Company d/b/a Missouri Gas Energy) of Spire Missouri, Inc. The ISRS first appeared on customer bills in April 2004.
The ISRS adjustment reflects infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company since July 1, 2018. These costs for natural gas pipeline replacements and relocations are not currently included in Spire’s rates.
The current ISRS for residential customers of Spire West is $0.80 a month. As a result of this case, the ISRS will be adjusted and residential customers will pay $1.79 a month. Spire Missouri, Inc. seeks to have the change take effect by May 14, 2019.
Spire West provides natural gas service to approximately 513,180 customers in Andrew, Barry, Barton, Bates, Buchanan, Carroll, Cass, Cedar, Christian, Clay, Clinton, Dade, DeKalb, Greene, Henry, Howard, Jackson, Jasper, Johnson, Lafayette, Lawrence, McDonald, Moniteau, Pettis, Platte, Ray, Saline, Stone and Vernon counties.
