KCP&L Greater Missouri Operations Company (GMO) has filed a request with the Missouri Public Service Commission to adjust the fuel adjustment charge (FAC) on the bills of its electric customers.

GMO has made two filings. In its first filing (Case No. ER-2019-0413), GMO proposes to adjust the FAC to reflect fuel and purchased power costs for the six month period of Dec. 2018 through May 2019. The second case is GMO’s true-up filing (Case No. ER-2019-0414).

According to the filings, a residential customer using 1,000 kWh a month will see the monthly FAC charge increase from approximately $4.92 a month to approximately $5.46 a month, an increase of approximately $0.54 a month. The proposed change would take effect in September.
