PSC Sets Intervention Deadline In KCP&L-GMO Request
JEFFERSON CITY---KCP&L Greater Missouri Operations Company (KCP&L-GMO) has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking Commission authority to establish a renewable energy standard rate adjustment mechanism (RESRAM) on the bills of its electric customers. If approved, it would appear as a separate item on the monthly electric bills of KCP&L-GMO customers.
According to the application, KCP&L-GMO seeks a RESRAM which would allow the electric company to adjust rates outside the context of a general electric rate case to reflect prudently incurred renewable energy standard costs. These costs would be costs not already included in the company’s base rates. According to KCP&L-GMO, a typical residential customer using 867 kWh a month would see a RESRAM charge of 81 cents on their monthly electric bill.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than May 15, 2014,
with the Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102 or by using the Commission’s Electronic Filing and Information System (EFIS) at www.psc.mo.gov
