ST. LOUIS — Customers of Ameren Missouri will be seeing a slight decline in the price of their electric bills starting later this month.

The Missouri Public Service Commission approved a reduction in the charge that the company passes on to customers for the cost of the fuel and power it purchases.

The change will save $2.54 a month for a residential customer using 1,100 kilowatt-hours of electricity monthly.

Ameren Missouri serves about 1.2 million electric customers in the state.

Utility restructuring currently being planned in the United States includes distributional surcharges. In Colorado, 1000 customers have agreed to pay $2.50 per month above their regular electric rates to help finance a 10 MW wind farm.
