Kansas City Power & Light Iatan Power Plant, Units 1 & 2
Weston, Missouri, USA
Megaproject – Coal, 1,520 MW
Pegasus-Global was retained by KCP&L to assist in its rate case regarding Iatan Unit 1 Power Plant environmental upgrades and common facilities with Unit 2 before the Missouri Public Service Commission and separately before the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC).
Unit 1 environmental upgrades include emissions-reducing upgrades that use available technologies to reduce carbon and other emissions on a coal-fired generating plant originally completed in the early 1980s.
Dr. Kris Nielsen testified in the Missouri PSC and KCC regarding the proper prudence standards, KCP&L’s management decision-making under that standard, and the applicable in-service criteria. KCP&L reached a settlement with all parties to the Missouri rate case that allowed costs of the capital project to go into rate base. This rate case was the first docket to consider the prudence of electric power generating facility capital costs in Missouri since the Calloway Nuclear Plant went into service nearly 20 years prior.
