PSC Approves Change in Evergy Missouri West DSIM Charge

JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request filed by Evergy Missouri West, Inc. d/b/a Evergy Missouri West (formerly known as KCP&L-Greater Missouri Operations Company) to adjust the Demand Side Investment Mechanism (DSIM) charge on customer bills. The DSIM charge, which appears as a separate line-item on customer bills, allows Evergy Missouri West to recover demand-side management program costs and incentives under the Missouri Energy Efficiency Investment Act (MEEIA).

A residential customer using 1,000 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of electricity a month will see the charge increase by approximately $1.31 a month, effective March 1, 2020.

Evergy Missouri West provides electric service to approximately 334,100 customers in the Missouri counties of Andrew, Atchison, Barton, Bates, Benton, Buchanan, Carroll, Cass, Cedar, Clay, Clinton, Dade, Daviess, DeKalb, Gentry, Grundy, Harrison, Henry, Holt, Jackson, Johnson, Lafayette, Livingston, Mercer, Nodaway, Pettis, Platte, Ray, St. Clair, Vernon and Worth.
