Consumer Counsel Advisory regarding KCPL

August 31, 2011

Dear Consumers,

Many of you have contacted CURB recently to register your objections to KCPL's request for $9.1 million in rate case costs, $7.6 million of which would pay for outside legal help KCPL hired to fight for its recent $22 million rate increase. KCPL's request is currently being considered by the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC).

We appreciate your willingness to let us know your opinions, but would like to remind all of you that the Commission needs to hear your opinions in order for them to be taken into consideration.

Your comments should be directed to:
