Westar Customers Will See Bills Rise

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan.- Westar Energy customers will see their electric bills rise by an average of 11 percent later this year.

The Kansas Corporation Commission approved a 130 million dollar rate increase for the state's largest electric utility Wednesday.

The Topeka-based company's shareholders will see a return on their equity of about 10.4 percent.

The rate increase follows a settlement reached last fall between Westar, state regulatory staff and an agency representing consumers.
