On December 11, 2020, Spire filed a natural gas rate case with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking a net increase in its base distribution rates of approximately $65 million. Spire is also requesting rebasing of approximately $47 million of Infrastructure System Replacement Surcharge (ISRS) which is already being recovered in rates. 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. In this rate case, Spire also seeks to consolidate, to the extent possible, its two service areas known as Spire East and Spire West.
Spire provides natural gas service to approximately 1.17 million natural gas customers in Missouri. In the KMMO listening area this includes: Carroll, Cooper, Howard, Lafayette, Pettis, and Saline, counties.
