Missouri Public Service Commission approves Ameren rate increase
Ameren Missouri filed a rate request in July 2016 seeking a revenue increase of about $206.4 million

Ameren Missouri filed a rate request in July 2016 seeking a revenue increase of about $206.4 million.
The utility has said it needed the increased revenue because of new capital investments, transmission and distribution projects, as well as higher transmission operator charges and reduced revenue demand on its system.
The agreement continues a clause that allows Ameren Missouri to adjust customer bills up to three times a year.
Ameren Missouri serves about 1.26 million customers in Missouri.
