Content Note

R. C. Loux collected these materials while serving on the Kansas State Corporation Commission. This collection includes personal notes taken by Loux, and court dockets concerning Kansas Gas and Electric (KG&E) and Kansas City Power and Light Company (KCP &L) related to their involvement with Wolf Creek Nuclear Generating Station. Annual reports of utility companies involved in Wolf Creek also comprise part of the collection. Proposals submitted by different companies to the State Corporation Commission are included along with examples of other power plants in the U.S. undergoing the same problems as Wolf Creek. The State Corporation Commission investigated the request of the builders of Wolf Greek to increase electric rates to help pay for the increasing cost of building the plant. The greater part of the collection dates between 1982 and 1984.
