This Week in the PSC: Dec. 12, 2018

  

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Public Service Commission held an agenda meeting on Wednesday, where they worked through three items and new orders.

The first item up in the short meeting dealt with the application submitted by Union Electric, doing business as Ameren Missouri, for the approval and a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity authorizing the construction of a wind generation facility.

The commission submitted a report on December 12 that found, and concluded, that Ameren Missouri may recover depreciation expenses and returns associated with the High Prairie project recorded to plant-in-service on the utility’s books as it is permitted to do by the RES statute, exclusive of the eighty-five percent of that expense and return deferred for future recovery pursuant to the PISA statute.

Ameren shall file a RESRAM tariff on the terms reflected in the tariff sheets attached to the approved Third Stipulation and Agreement, according to the order approved by the commission. The order has  an December 22, 2018, effective date.
