PSC APPROVES CHANGE TO KCP&L-GMO FUEL ADJUSTMENT CHARGE

Customers of an electric provider will soon see their bills go up by a bit.

According to a news release, the Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request filed by KCP&L-Greater Missouri Operations Company (GMO) to change the fuel adjustment charge (FAC) on the monthly bills of its electric customers.

The FAC change reflects fuel and purchased power costs during the six month period of June 2016 through November 2016.

The change in the FAC will take effect on March 1, 2017. It will mean an increase of approximately 35 cents a month for the typical residential customer (average usage of 868 kWh per month).

KCP&L-GMO provides electric service to approximately 316,600 electric customers in several counties in the KMMO listening area, including Benton, Carroll, Henry, Johnson, Lafayette, Livingston, Pettis and Ray.
