CURB joins Midwest Energy settlement; KCC approval pending

CURB, the KCC Staff and Midwest Energy have reached a settlement on Midwest's request for a $3.3 million increase. If approved by the KCC, Midwest will receive a $1.8 million increase, and agrees not to seek recovery of certain costs related to the acquisition of the "W" system customers from Westar in 2005. Industrial customers who intervened in the case have agreed not to oppose the settlement. The KCC order on the settlement agreement should be issued no later than October 31.
