Westar seeks 25-cent per month average increase

KSAL StaffMay 10, 2014

Westar Energy is seeking a rate increase that’s expected to cost most residential customers an average of about 25 cents more a month.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports  the utility has filed documents with the Kansas Corporation Commission requesting a rate increase of less than 1 cent per kilowatt hour. The company says the increase is intended to cover higher-than-expected energy costs.

The KCC regulates electric utilities and decides whether to allow rate changes, though cost adjustments like the one Westar has filed for are usually quickly approved.

Westar spokeswoman Gina Penzig says the increase will mean about 25 cents a month more for two-thirds of the company’s residential customers.
