Earnings for the quarter were driven by the inclusion of Kansas City Power & Light Co. and KCP&L Greater Missouri Operations Co. results in 2019, and lower operating expenses, offset by unfavorable weather and higher depreciation expense.
Evergy reaffirmed its 2019 adjusted earnings guidance in the range of $2.80 to $3.00 per share.
