The Missouri Public Service Commission has established a deadline for those wishing to intervene and participate in a natural gas rate case filed by Union Electric Company d/b/a Ameren Missouri.

On March 31, Ameren Missouri filed a natural gas rate case with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking to increase its natural gas base rate annual revenues by approximately $9.4 million.  According to Ameren Missouri, the adjustment in base rates will mean natural gas rates will increase for an average residential customer by approximately $4 a month.

Ameren Missouri serves approximately 135,000 natural gas customers in 25 Missouri counties.

Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than April 30, 2021, with the Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O.
