Ameren Raises Rates for Natural Gas Customers

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Natural gas customers of Ameren Missouri soon will see their rates go up.

The monthly bill for a typical residential customer is projected to rise by about $3.30 under a plan approved by state regulators. The increase will take effect Feb. 1.

The Missouri Public Service Commission said Thursday the rate agreement will generate about $5.6 million annually for Ameren Missouri. The company had requested an $11.9 million rate increase.

This increase is intended to cover the company’s infrastructure costs and its increased cost of providing natural gas service since its last general rate case in March 2007.

Ameren Missouri serves about 126,000 natural gas customers.
