On December 11, 2020, Spire filed a natural gas rate case with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking a net increase in its base distribution rates of approximately $65 million. According to Spire, the effect of the proposed rates on the Company’s residential customers would be to raise the bill of a typical heating customer (average natural gas usage of 63 therms a month) by an average of approximately $3.28 per month. Spire also seeks, to the extent possible, to consolidate the rate structures of its two service areas known as Spire East and Spire West.

Spire provides natural gas service to approximately 1.17 million natural gas customers in the City of St. Louis as well as the Missouri counties of Andrew, Barry, Barton, Bates, Buchanan, Butler, Carroll, Cass, Cedar, Christian, Clay, Clinton, Cooper, Crawford, Dade, DeKalb, Franklin, Greene, Henry, Howard, Iron, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Johnson, Lafayette, Lawrence, Madison, McDonald, Moniteau, Newton, Pettis, Platte, Ray, Saline, Stone, St. Charles, St. Francois, Ste.
