Westar energy announces 2nd quarter earnings for 2008 are 83% lower than earnings in the same quarter a year ago.
The company says the decrease is largely due to additional planned and unplanned extended maintenance outages at lower-cost power plants.
Westar reports earning a total of $5.6 million - $.06 per share this 2nd quarter. Last year the company earned $32.5 million - $.36 per share - in the same quarter.
