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 KCP&L-Greater Missouri Operations Company) to adjust the Demand Side Investment Mechanism (DSIM) charge on customer bills.

A residential customer using 1,000 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of electricity a month will see the charge drop by approximately $0.26 a month, effective August 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.
