KCP&L seeks rate increase for outlying Missouri customers

Kansas City Power & Light is asking to increase electric bills about $9 a month on average for 295,000 of its Missouri customers, mainly those outside Kansas City.

The request for an 8.2 percent increase in rates for its Greater Missouri Operations was filed Wednesday with the Missouri Public Service Commission. Those operations serve customers in the former territories of St. Joseph Light & Power and Missouri Public Service, areas KCP&L acquired in 2008.

The utility said it had been four years since it asked to increase rates in those service territories.

The new request, if granted in full, would give KCP&L an additional $59.3 million in annual revenue. Given how long rate cases usually take, the utility said, any new rates approved would be expected to take effect in January 2017.
