Public Service Commission to Discuss Action on Kemper County Power Plant - Feb.6

At its open meeting Tuesday, February 6, 2018 the Public Service Commission expects to make a decision on docket number 2017-AD-112, or Kemper Settlement Docket. The settlement comes as a result of a Commission Order in June 2017, in which the Commission encouraged parties to reach a final solution to Kemper.

Commissioners stated that any proposal brought before them should result in no rate increase and preferably a rate decrease for residential customers. Additionally, Commissioners insisted that all risk be removed from ratepayers for the lignite coal related assets located at the facility and that the certificate be amended to reflect the facility to be run only using natural gas.

The agreement before the Commission, if approved, will end all issues surrounding the Kemper Facility.
