Important Solar Notice for Kansans!



Grid Access Fees Stifle Solar Growth in Kansas

Save Kansas Solar - Submit a Public Comment Opposing Evergy’s Grid Access Fees!

ET NO. 18-WSEE-328-RTS

Evergy is proposing a new rate design for residential solar customers, the rate design includes a monthly residential grid access fee of $3.00 per kW of installed distributed generation capacity. Distributed generation capacity refers to the size of a customer’s rooftop solar panel. If this proposal is unacceptable to the Commission, Evergy’s alternative request is a minimum bill amount of $35 to all residential customers monthly bills (including those without solar). Their expert witness testimony can be found here.

We need Kansans to flood the commission with comments!
