PSC Sets Intervention Deadline in KCP&L
Fuel and Purchased Power Adjustment Charge Cases

JEFFERSON CITY---Kansas City Power & Light Company (KCP&L) 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.

KCP&L has made two filings. In its first filing (Case No. ER-2020-0025), KCP&L proposes to adjust the FAC to reflect fuel and purchased power costs for the six month period January through June 2019. The second case is KCP&L’s true-up filing (Case No. EO-2020-0026). Under the filings by KCP&L, for a residential customer using 1,000 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of electricity a month, the FAC will drop by approximately $3.36 a month, from approximately $4.09 a month to approximately $0.73 a month. The proposed change would take effect on October 1, 2019.
