The Kansas Corporation Commission together with Westar and KCP&L killed the residential rooftop solar industry by changing electricity rates for solar homeowners. Good solar jobs are disappearing overnight, along with homeowners chance to save on their energy bills.
The good news is that Kansas lawmakers will be considering a bill to grow the rooftop solar industry.
SB 124 and HB 2190; the Energy Fairness Act protects Kansans and their right to manage their energy usage in order to lower bills without penalty or discrimination. The Act allows no extra charges for investor owned utility customers who generate some of their own power.
In a state with abundant sun, rooftop solar should be a no brainer yet Kansans with rooftop solar are subject to demand charges. Our bill reverses those charges.
The Energy Fairness Act will protect Kansans and their right to manage their energy usage in order to lower bills without penalty or discrimination by preventing demand charges for Westar/Kansas City Power & Light/Evergy or the Empire District's residential customers.
Kansas Solar needs your help to get the Energy Fairness Act passed in the statehouse.
