Kansas City Power and Light Rate Design Proposal

Client:

Sierra Club retained Synapse to evaluate Kansas City Power & Light's application before the Missouri Public Service Commission to nearly triple customers’ fixed charge from $9 to $25 per month. Synapse conducted analysis and provided expert testimony regarding the impacts of the Company's proposed rate design on efficient price signals, customer equity, and investments in distributed energy resources. Ultimately the Commission rejected the Company’s proposal, approving a new fixed charge of only $11.88.
