KCC files Westar complaint

By The Herald Staff | 8/22/2014

TOPEKA — The Kansas Corporation Committee believes Kansas residents have been charged wrongfully to pay for energy to their homes.

The KCC has filed a complaint against Westar Energy, Inc., the largest energy producer in the state, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, according to a news release. The complaint contends Westar, which provides electric service to nearly 700,000 customers, is charging unjust and unreasonable electric transmission rates. If the complaint is granted, Westar’s current rates could be reduced by approximately $15.8 million annually, the release said. Based on anticipated utility growth, the figure is expected to approximately double over the next five years.
