PSC Approves Laclede Gas Company Request To Adjust Infrastructure Surcharge
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request filed by Laclede Gas Company (Laclede) to adjust the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) on the bills of its natural gas customers. The surcharge first appeared on customer bills in June 2004.
The ISRS adjustment reflects infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company since June 1, 2012. These costs for natural gas pipeline replacements and relocations are not currently included in Laclede’s rates.
The current ISRS for residential customers of Laclede is $1.23 a month. As a result of this filing, the ISRS will be adjusted and residential customers will pay $1.82 a month. The change will take effect on March 15, 2013.
Laclede Gas Company provides natural gas service to approximately 630,000 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.
