Monday will be only public hearing on Westar-KCPL merger

Associated Press - December 4, 2016 12:05 pm

The only planned public hearing on the biggest utility merger in Kansas history is scheduled for Monday in suburban Topeka.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://j.mp/2fUGSPV) the Kansas Corporation Commission has scheduled Monday evening at a Topeka-area high school as the single public hearing on the proposed $12.2 billion acquisition of Westar by Great Plains Energy, the parent company of KCP&L.

Customers in other parts of the state will be able to watch the hearing live or view a replay at the KCC website. They can also submit comments in writing or online at the site.

If the merger’s approved, Westar and KCP&L will become a single electric company straddling the Kansas/Missouri border, with 1.5 million customers.
