Energy

At Spire, we believe the greatest energy in the world comes from one source—people. So we created a strategy to use that energy for good and have a positive, measurable impact on the world around us. See how we did in our third Corporate Social Responsibility report. (Source: www.spireenergy.com)

We are only taking emergency calls, so if you smell natural gas, leave the area and call us. We’re very sorry for any inconvenience, and check back for ongoing updates. (Source: www.spireenergy.com)

A federal commission will meet next week to consider whether to allow Spire to continue operating a natural gas pipeline in Missouri and Illinois this winter.

Regionally, Kosnik added, the Spire situation is a good reminder of the importance of ensuring a mix of energy sources for any given community. “You don’t want to just rely on coal or oil or natural gas or one pipeline, for example,” she said. (Source: news.stlpublicradio.org)
