PSC Sets Intervention Deadline in Evergy Missouri Metro
Fuel and Purchased Power Adjustment Charge Cases

JEFFERSON CITY---Evergy Missouri Metro, Inc. d/b/a Evergy Missouri Metro (Evergy Metro) has filed a request with the Missouri Public Service Commission to adjust the fuel and purchased power adjustment charge (FAC) on the bills of its electric customers.

Evergy Metro has made two filings. In its first filing (Case No. ER-2021-0244), Evergy Metro proposes to adjust the FAC to reflect fuel and purchased power costs for the six month period July 2020 through December 2020. The second case is Evergy Metro’s true-up filing (Case No. EO-2021-0243).

Under the filings by Evergy Metro, a residential customer using 1,000 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of electricity a month will see the FAC drop by approximately $0.67 a month, from approximately $0.53 a month to a monthly credit of approximately $0.14 a month. The proposed change would take effect on April 1, 2021.

Applications to intervene and participate in these cases must be filed no later than February 15, 2021, with the Secretary of the Missouri Public Service Commission, P.O.
