PSC Approves Agreement in Spire Missouri ISRS Cases
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved an agreement reached by Spire Missouri, Inc., the Staff of the Missouri Public Service Commission and the Office of the Public Counsel which changes the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) for Spire West and Spire East customers.
The Spire East ISRS adjustment reflects infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company from March 1, 2020 through August 31, 2020. These costs for natural gas pipeline replacements and relocations are not currently included in Spire East rates. The current ISRS for residential customers of Spire East is $2.23 a month. As a result of this case, the ISRS will be adjusted and residential customers will pay $2.78 a month. The ISRS first appeared on Spire East customer bills in June 2004.
The Spire West ISRS adjustment reflects the annual reconciliation of the difference between the revenues resulting from its ISRS and the appropriate pretax revenues for the period of October 8, 2018 through June 30, 2020. The current ISRS for residential customers of Spire West is $3.16 a month. As a result of this case, the ISRS will be adjusted and residential customers will pay $3.32 a month. The ISRS first appeared on Spire West customer bills in April 2004.
Spire East provides natural gas service to approximately 654,400 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.
Spire West provides natural gas service to approximately 517,500 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.
