Dear Friend,

PSC Chairman Kevin Gunn thinks that Ameren Missouri and Kansas City Power & Light may be coordinating rate case filings in order to overwhelm consumer advocates and is launching an investigation.

“I have some concern over the possibility that rate cases have been timed to overwhelm the resources of the commission staff, the office of Public Counsel and any other intervener,” Gunn said in letters to Ameren and KCP&L Attorneys. “That would be especially troublesome if there was evidence of communication between the utilities, or internal utility communications, to file rate cases closely together.”

“Gunn has vowed to make sure the state’s investor-owned utilities aren’t taking advantage of a weakened consumer advocate. Regardless of the outcome of the inquiry, he said, ‘I want to make it clear that we’re paying attention.’”

This kind of action is what we’re up against.  We need your help to make sure that the Public Service Commission stands up for consumers.  Contact the PSC to encourage them to investigate these utility companies closely and then share this message with a friend.

We need your help to fight back!

Sincerely,

The FERAF Team
