Hearings This Week on Rate Increase Request For Ameren

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) –  Public hearings have been scheduled around the state in February and March about Ameren Missouri’s request for a rate increase.

St. Louis-based Ameren Missouri filed a request late last year for an 11 percent increase to electric rates in all rate classes, amounting to $263 million annually.

The Missouri Public Service Commission begins evidentiary hearings on the request in April.

The commission is sponsoring the public hearings to give customers a chance to ask questions about the possible increase.

Ameren spokeswoman Lisa Manzo told The Southeast Missourian that the increase is not in anticipation of future projects but is a reimbursement for previous work.
