Spire Missouri Inc. d/b/a Spire (Spire East formerly Laclede Gas Company, and Spire West formerly Laclede Gas Company d/b/a Missouri Gas Energy) has filed applications with the Missouri Public Service Commission to adjust the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) on the bills of its customers.
Spire seeks the ISRS adjustment to reflect infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company since October 1, 2017. These costs for natural gas pipeline replacements and relocations are not currently included in Spire rates.
In its applications, Spire is requesting an increase of approximately $0.57, or less than 1%, per month for a typical Spire East residential heating customer. For a typical Spire West residential heating customer, an increase of approximately $1.04, or less than 1%, per month is requested. The ISRS appears as a separate item on the monthly bills of Spire customers.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than June 18, 2018
