Westar Seeks $3.5 Million for Costs



TOPEKA, Kan. - Westar Energy and Kansas City Power & Light want to charge customers for plant upgrades sooner than anticipated.
 
The two companies share ownership of the coal-fired plant at La Cygne and presented the Kansas Corporation Commission Thursday the reasons they should approve a different approach to recovery costs.
 
The companies normally couldn't begin charging for the additional costs without filing a full rate case. But that process takes several months.
 
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1pRMQ1O ) Westar's request would total about $3.5 million, which would cost the average residential customer about 16 cents per month. KCP&L hadn't specified a dollar amount in its filings with KCC as of Friday.
 
KCC chairwoman Shari Feist Albrecht said Thursday's presentations were educational only and wouldn't be entered into evidence for a final decision.
