Utility Rate Hike Public Hearings Scheduled

On Feb. 3, Ameren Missouri filed an electric rate case with the Missouri Public Service Commission (PSC) seeking an increase of approximately 14 percent, or $14 per month. The utility company’s filing also included a request to continue its fuel adjustment clause. Public comment hearings have been set before the Public Service Commission and are listed below. Please note that each hearing will commence with an informal question and answer session prior to hearing public testimony.

Twelve local public hearings are scheduled during July and August in cities in the affected areas of the state. “AARP Missouri opposes the increase,” said Norma Collins, AARP Missouri associate state director or Advocacy. “We encourage all utility customers in the affected rate areas to attend the public hearings and voice their opinions.”
Ratepayers in the Ameren Missouri are encouraged to attend and the following public meeting sites are listed below. Locations, dates and times are subject to change.
