KCC Approves Evergy Rate Increase

 The Kansas Corporation Commission approves a rate increase for Evergy.

 Evergy had requested an increase of over $204 million, but the KCC said it could not justify that much of an increase. State Senator Virgil Peck says the proposed increase would have affected rate payers far from the proposed economic benefits. While the KCC did not approve Evergy's original amount, they did determine an increase of $34 million for rate payers would be justified. A final decision will not be made until late December or early January.

(Corrected: An earlier version of this story stated the KCC had approved the $34 million increase)
