WICHITA, Kan. -- Many Kansas electric customers could soon see an increase in their electric bills.
WESTAR Energy is looking to raise rates on residential customers and drop the rates of large businesses.
The Wichita Eagle reported the change would amount to an extra $7.50 a month on the average residential electric bill. Large industrial customers' bills would drop by about 8 percent.
WESTAR said it wants to shift costs because large volume customers are not paying more than their share of the cost of operating the system.
The Kansas Corporation Commission will decide whether to allow the proposed changes.
