KC Chamber sends letters supporting Great Plains Energy merger with Westar Energy



Great Plains Energy, the parent company of KCP&L, is seeking approval from Missouri and Kansas state public utility commissions to purchase Topeka-based Westar Energy. The merger, as The Kansas City Star described it, would create a regional energy giant with 1.5 million customers.
 
The KC Chamber is sending letters in support of the merger to both the Missouri Public Service Commission and the Kansas Corporation Commission.
