JEFFERSON CITY---Evergy Missouri West, Inc. d/b/a Evergy Missouri West (formerly KCP&L-Greater Missouri Operations Company) has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking to adjust its renewable energy standard rate adjustment mechanism (RESRAM) charge that currently appears on the monthly electric bills of Evergy Missouri West customers.
