LAST CHANCE to take action against Evergy’s unfair rate proposals!
Submit a Public Comment Opposing Evergy’s $35 Minimum Bill and Grid Access Fee
As our battle over solar equity continues with the state’s largest utility, we are now combatting their false narrative that solar users can afford to invest thousands in systems at the expense of low-income ratepayers. We’ve heard things like, “I’m just astonished people can afford to pay $40,000 for a system and are upset that there’s a bill increase.”
We know that’s not true. In fact, we heard from dozens of Kansans on November 5th that they worked really hard to save and plan so they have the ability to go solar for cost management.
Evergy also dismissed the concerns of the $35 minimum bill negatively impacting low-income customers, citing hypothetical exemption options that they haven’t clearly outlined. Putting the burden on low-income customers is not the answer, and neither is penalizing solar growth.More than ever, we should be focusing on economic recovery that benefits low to middle class Kansans. Instead, Evergy wants to squeeze even more out of Kansans so they can pad their bottom line.
We need you to take action today. You have until December 21st to make your voice heard, and encourage others to do the same! Here’s how:
