PSC approves Empire District Electric fuel adjustment charge
The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request filed by The Empire District Electric Company (Empire) to change the fuel adjustment charge (FAC) on the monthly bills of its electric customers.
A residential customer using 1,000 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of electricity a month will see the FAC decrease by approximately $0.35 a month. The change is expected to take effect in June.
The FAC change reflects Empire’s fuel and purchased power costs for the six month period of September 2015 through February 2016 (Case No. ER-2016-0253). It also reflects Empire’s annual FAC true-up filing (EO-2016-0254).
The Empire District Electric Company serves approximately 150,300 electric customers in the Missouri counties of Barry, Barton, Cedar, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Greene, Hickory, Jasper, Lawrence, McDonald, Newton, Polk, St. Clair, Stone and Taney.
