JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Ameren Missouri (Union Electric Company) has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking to adjust the Energy Efficiency Investment Charge that appears on the monthly bills of its electric customers.
For a typical residential customer, the EEIC will drop from $3.74 a month to $0.55 a month, effective Jan. 25. The proposed adjustment reflects the actual and forecasted costs of the company's approved energy efficiency programs.
The EEIC is a charge which encourages utility companies to implement demand-side and energy efficiency programs and was part of the Missouri Energy Efficiency Investment Act. The mechanism is reflected as a separate line item on customer bills.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than Dec. 6 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 System at www.psc.mo.gov.
