Empire District Electric customers to see rate increase


The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request to change the fuel adjustment charge on the monthly bills of Empire District Electric Company customers.

The FAC for a residential customer using 1,000 kWh 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 FAC change reflects Empire’s fuel and purchased power costs from September 2018 through February 2019. 

The change is expected to take place on June 1st.
