The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request filed by KCP&L-Greater Missouri Operations Company (GMO) to change the fuel adjustment charge (FAC) on the monthly bills of electric customers.

The commission says the FAC change reflects fuel and purchased power costs during the six-month period of December 2017 through May 2018.

It also reflects the company’s FAC true-up.

A press release from the Public Service Commission indicates an average residential customer using 1,000 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of electricity per month month, the FAC will increase from approximately $1.26 a month to $2.40 a month.

The change in the fuel adjustment charge will take effect on September 1, 2018.

GMO provides electric service to approximately 320,500 customers in several counties, some of which include Pettis, Johnson, Benton, and Henry.

Questions and comments should be directed to the Public Service Commission at 1-573-751-3234 or online at psc.mo.gov.
