Westar Requests $17.4M Rate Increase

KSAL StaffOctober 27, 2016

Westar Energy has filed a request to raise its prices by about $17.4 million, which would raise the average residential bill in Kansas by about $1.54 per month.

Westar spokeswoman Gina Penzig says the company filed the request with the Kansas Corporation Commission to recover costs that weren’t available when last year’s full price was conducted.

The  bulk of the $17.4 million request is related to environmental upgrades at power plants, primarily in the LaCygne Generation Station, to meet federal requirements.

Other costs include $6.5 million used to make investments in the grid design for improved reliability.
