The Missouri Public Service Commission has directed Kansas City Power & Light Co. to offer stand-by electric services to self-generation customers at market-based prices.
The project would add an overall boost to MP's system capacity of 400 to 875 MMcf/day. Unfortunately, the delays caused by litigation may have lost Mojave its expected customer base. Mojave president and CEO Michael Holland says the pipeline will not be built without support for at least 325 MMcf/day.
And if the pipeline is not built, competition will suffer a major blow, because the expansion would have enabled customers in Northern California to buy natural gas from a company other than PG&E for the first time. t
