PSC Approves Change in KCP&L DSIM Charge
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved an application filed by Kansas City Power & Light Company (KCP&L) 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 KCP&L 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 $3.45 a month, effective August 1, 2019.
KCP&L provides electric service to approximately 284,500 customers in the Missouri counties of Carroll, Cass, Chariton, Clay, Howard, Jackson, Johnson, Lafayette, Livingston, Pettis, Platte, Randolph and Saline.
