Spire Missouri, Inc. (Spire) has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking to adjust the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) on the bills of its Spire East and Spire West natural gas customers. The surcharge first appeared on Spire East and Spire West customer bills in 2004. Spire seeks the adjustment to reflect infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company from June 1, 2021 through November 30, 2021.
Spire’s application includes pro forma ISRS costs for December 2021. These costs for natural gas pipeline replacements and relocations are not currently included in Spire’s rates. The current ISRS for residential customers of Spire East and Spire West is $0.00.
Spire East residential customers would pay an ISRS of $0.49 a month and Spire West residential customers would pay an ISRS of $0.97 a month if the Commission approves Spire’s application.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than January 24, 2022, 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 (EFIS) at www.psc.mo.gov.
