Union Electric Company d/b/a Ameren Missouri filed an application today with the Missouri Public Service Commission requesting the Commission grant the electric services company variances under certain Commission rules concerning prohibiting promotional practices.

Ameren Missouri requests the variances in order to compete with Cuivre River Electric Cooperative, Inc. —  an unregulated entity —  for business in a new subdivision Grantham Estates located in St. Charles County near Flint Hill, Missouri. 

Ameren Missouri states in its application that it and the cooperative both have facilities in the vicinity of the proposed subdivision and the territory is not subject to an existing service territory agreement.
