According to Spire, the effect of the proposed rates on the Company’s residential customers would be to raise the bill of a typical heating customer by an average of approximately $3.28 per month.
Spire provides natural gas service to approximately 1.17 million natural gas customers in the City of St. Louis as well as the Missouri counties of Bates, Cass, Johnson, and Vernon.
