A new coal-fired power plant will be built in western Missouri and an attempt to get more electricity from the wind will be made. The Public Service Commission has reached an agreement with Kansas City Power and Light that will allow the utility to build an 800-to-900 Megawatt coal-fired power plant next to its Iatan plant near Weston. PSC spokesman, Kevin Kelly, says KCP&L will also try to generate more electricity through more environmentally friendly ways. Customers will be encouraged to be more energy efficient. Transmission lines and infrastructure will undergo more than $42-Million in improvements. KCP&L has agreed to not ask for a rate increase until 2007.
