FUEL ADJUSTMENT CHARGE TO CHANGE FOR LIBERTY ELECTRIC CUSTOMERS

PRESS RELEASE

JEFFERSON CITY–Electric customers of The Empire District Electric Company d/b/a Liberty will see a change in the Fuel Adjustment Charge (FAC) on their electric bills effective June 1, 2021.

The change reflects energy costs incurred by Liberty during the six-month period of September 2020 through February 2021, less an adjustment to what the company stated were “extraordinary costs” associated with the February 2021 cold weather event. Liberty seeks to defer those costs.

For a residential customer using 1,000 kWh (1,000 kilowatt-hours) of electricity a month, the current FAC is a bill credit of approximately $1.90 a month. With this change, the new FAC will be approximately $0.00.

Liberty serves approximately 155,400 electric customers in the Missouri counties of Barry, Barton, Cedar, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Greene, Hickory, Jasper, Lawrence, McDonald, Newton, Polk, St. Clair, Stone and Taney.
