JEFFERSON CITY—The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request filed by Missouri Gas Energy, a division of Laclede Gas Company (MGE), to adjust the infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) on the bills of its natural gas customers.  The surcharge first appeared on customer bills in April 2004.

            The ISRS adjustment reflects infrastructure replacement investments made by the natural gas company since March 1, 2015.  These costs for natural gas pipeline replacements and relocations are not currently included in MGE’s rates.

            The current ISRS for residential customers of MGE is $0.71 a month.  As a result of this case, residential customers will pay an ISRS of $0.99 a month effective December 1, 2015.

            MGE provides natural gas service to approximately 505,800 customers in Missouri.
