Ameren Missouri Seeks Power Rate Hike

Brad Choat

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – If Ameren Missouri gets its way, customers will see their average monthly electric bills go up about $14, beginning next January.

Under a request filed Friday, Ameren is asking the Missouri Public Service Commission for a 14.6% rate increase.

President and CEO Warner Baxter explains why, “In this electric rate case filing, we are simply seeking to recover the costs and investments we have made to meet our customers expectations for safe, reliable, and clean energy.”

The PSC approved a 7% rate increase for Ameren about six months ago.
