PSC Sets Intervention Deadline In KCP&L Request
JEFFERSON CITY—Kansas City Power & Light Company (KCP&L) has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking approval of demand-side programs under the Missouri Energy Efficiency Investment Act (MEEIA). KCP&L also seeks authority to establish a Demand-Side Programs Investment Mechanism (DSIM).
According to the application, KCP&L seeks Commission approval for the majority of its existing demand-side management (DSM) programs and is requesting approval for four new DSM programs (Business Energy Efficiency Rebates-Standard, Home Energy Report Pilot, Home Appliance Recycling Rebate and Home Lighting Rebate). KCP&L also seeks approval to establish a charge on customer bills to recover demand-side management program costs and incentives. This would appear as a separate line-item on the monthly electric bill. According to KCP&L’s application, the charge would be implemented on customer bills beginning June 1, 2015.
Applications to intervene and participate in this case must be filed no later than January 21, 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 service (EFIS).
Individual citizens wishing to comment should contact either the Office of the Public Counsel (Governor Office Building, 200 Madison Street, Suite 650, P.O. Box 2230, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-2230, telephone (866) 922-2959, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
) or the Public Service Commission Staff (P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102, telephone 1-800-392-4211, e-mail email@example.com
). The Office of the Public Counsel is a separate state agency that represents the general public in matters before the Commission.
