Ameren Missouri to Reduce Energy Efficiency Investment Charge Rider

The Missouri Public Service Commission (MPSC) announced on January 7 that it had approved a request filed by Union Electric Company d/b/a Ameren Missouri (Case No. ER-2016-0131) to decrease the Energy Efficiency Investment Charge (EEIC) that appears as a separate line item on the monthly bills of the utility’s 1.1 million electric customers in the Show Me State.

The Energy Efficiency Investment Charge (EEIC) is a fee that encourages utility companies to implement demand-side and energy efficiency programs, and was part of the 2009 Missouri Energy Efficiency Investment Act (MEEIA).

The current adjustment will result in a reduction of about $7.27 a month for a typical residential customer. The change is expected to take effect on January 27.

Ameren Missouri filed this request for adjustment because its Missouri Energy Efficiency Investment Act (MEEIA) programs expired at year-end 2015, and Ameren Missouri does not currently have a commission-approved Cycle 2 Plan.

Indeed, last October, the MPSC determined that the plan proposed by Ameren Missouri for the next three-year period did not meet the requirements for the MEEIA (Case No. EO-2015-0055). As a result, the commission voted unanimously (5-0) to reject that program.
