WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — State utility regulators have rejected a request by Westar Energy to pass along the cost of buying 8% of the Jeffrey Energy Center.

The Wichita Eagle reports the request would have cost electric customers an estimated $93 million during the next 15 years.

The Kansas Corporation Commission’s order, released Thursday, said Westar doesn’t need the extra power to meet customer demand.
