PSC Sets Intervention Deadline
in Laclede Gas Infrastructure Surcharge Request
Laclede Gas Company (Laclede) has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking 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.
Laclede seeks the adjustment to reflect infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company since November 1, 2016. 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 $3.57 a month. Residential customers would pay an ISRS of $3.97 a month under Laclede’s proposal.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than February 22, 2017, with the Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102, or by using the Commission’s electronic filing and information service (EFIS) at www.psc.mo.gov.

Box 2230, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-2230, telephone (866) 922-2959, email firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Public Service Commission Staff (P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102, telephone 1-800-392-4211, email email@example.com).
