ORDER GRANTING APPLICATION TO INTERVENE

 

Issue Date:  July 11, 2013                                          Effective Date:  July 11, 2013

 

 

On May 28, 2013, Kansas City Power & Light Company (“KCP&L”) filed its 2013 Annual Renewable Energy Standard Compliance Plan and Report pursuant to Commission Rule 4 CSR 240-20.100.  The Missouri Department of Natural Resources (“DNR”) filed an application to intervene on June 27.

DNR states that it is tasked with certifying renewable energy resources and therefore it also has an interest different from that of the general public that may be adversely affected by a final order in this file.  Commission Rule 4 CSR 240-2.080(13) allows parties ten days to respond to motions.  No party objected to the application.  Therefore, the Commis­sion will take it up unopposed.

Commission Rule 4 CSR 240-2.075(3) allows the Commission to grant intervention to a person who has an interest different from that of the general public and which may be adversely affected by a final order arising from the case, or if granting intervention would serve the public interest.  Upon review of the unopposed application, the Commission finds that DNR meets the standard in Commission Rule 4 CSR 240‑2.075(3).  Therefore, the Commission will grant the application to intervene.

 

THE COMMISSION ORDERS THAT:

1.               The application to intervene filed by The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is granted.

2.               This order shall become effective upon issuance.
