PSC Approves Change in Steam Rates for Vicinity
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved tariffs filed by Vicinity Energy, Kansas City, Inc. (Vicinity) which change Vicinity’s Production Adjustment Cost Clause (PACC) rates for steam service.
Vicinity sought to adjust customer rates for changes in PACC production costs experienced between January and December 2022. In its filing, Vicinity stated the main driver of the increase in costs in 2022 was the cost of natural gas in 2022 versus the cost of natural gas in the base PACC cost.
As a result of this filing, the PACC surcharge will increase by approximately $7.15 per Mlb (per 1,000 pounds of steam). The change is scheduled to take effect on April 1, 2023. The PACC appears as a separate line item on steam customer bills.
Vicinity Energy Kansas City, Inc. provides steam service to approximately 49 customers in Jackson County.
