The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request filed by The Empire District Electric Company to change the fuel adjustment charge on the monthly bills of its electric customers.
As a result of this filing, the FAC for a residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a month will increase from a current refund of approximately $0.87 a month to an increase of approximately $3.51 a month, a total change of approximately $4.38 a month. The change is expected to take effect Saturday, June 1.
The FAC change reflects Empire’s fuel and purchased power costs for the six-month period of September 2018-February 2019 (Case No. ER-2019-0301). It also reflects Empire’s FAC true-up filing (Case No. EO-2019-0302).
The Empire District Electric Company serves approximately 153,000 electric customers in several Missouri counties, including Cedar.
