Ameren MO to adjust FAC charge on customer's bills

JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KFVS) - Some Ameren Missouri customers could soon see a change in their bills.

The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a filing made by Ameren Missouri to adjust the fuel and purchased power adjustment charge (FAC) on customer's electric bills.

According to a news release, a customer using 1,100 kWh (kilowatt-hours) per month will see the FAC charge increase by approximately $0.66 a month, from $2.97 to $3.63. The change will take effect on May 27.

According to Ameren, the fuel adjustment charge was authorized by the Commission for Ameren Missouri in a regular rate case in 2009.

The FAC tariff allows the company to pass increases or decreases in its net fuel and purchase power costs to customers outside of a general rate case.

Fuel adjustment charges are intended to help companies deal with volatility in fuel pricing.

Ameren Missouri provides electric service to approximately 1.2 million electric customers in Missouri.
