TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas City Power & Light has been granted an $11.5 million revenue increase that will boost an average residential customers bill by more than $2 a month.

The Kansas Corporation Commission said in a release Thursday that KCC approved the settlement agreement reached between KCP&L;, KCC staff and the Citizens’ Utility Ratepayer Board that grants KCP&L; the $11,535,857 increase.

The KCC, which regulates public utilities including electric and water companies, says the hike will mean about $2.24 per month more on an average residential customer’s bill after July 24.

KCP&L; had sought a $12.1 million revenue increase the utility said was to meet federal Environmental Protection Agency requirements.
