PSC Approves Ameren Missouri Natural Gas Tariff
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a tariff filed by Union Electric Company d/b/a Ameren Missouri regarding the Delivery Charge Adjustment (DCA) on the bills of Ameren Missouri natural gas customers.
The establishment of the DCA was part of an agreement reached by parties in a natural gas general rate case filed by Ameren Missouri in December of 2018. That agreement was approved by the Public Service Commission in August of last year.
Under state law, the Commission may authorize a natural gas utility to make rate adjustments outside of a general rate case to reflect non-gas revenue effects of increases or decreases in residential and commercial customer usage, but only if the revenue effects are due to variations in either weather, conservation or both.
Under the tariff approved by the Commission, a residential customer will see a DCA of approximately $0.0158 per Ccf (per hundred cubic feet) of natural gas, starting on November 1, 2020. For a residential customer that uses 100 Ccf’s a month, the DCA will be approximately $1.58 a month.
Ameren Missouri provides natural gas service to approximately 132,350 customers in Missouri.
