• Caruthersville, MO - Thirty-four individuals signed the request to testify list to address the Public Service Commission at the first of three Public Hearings scheduled for June 9, 10 and 11 in Caruthersville, St Louis and Jefferson City, respectively. The Public Hearings are to determine an issue between Noranda, an aluminum smelter in New Madrid who is Southeast Missouri's largest employer, and Ameren, the power company. Noranda is asking for their power rates to be fixed at $30/Megawatt hour. Ameren claims this rate would be below their cost and all other Ameren customers would see an increase of 1.8%. Noranda is Ameren's biggest customer buying 10% of all of Ameren's power each month. Noranda pays over $160 Million to Ameren
