CEP helps you take action on pressing climate and energy issues in Kansas. In 2020, you all showed up for clean energy! Thanks to those of you who represented Kansas solar during the Supreme Court Hearing last winter and all of you who submitted testimonies on the proposed punitive rate charges for solar users. You show up and turn up the heat to make sure all Kansans can access clean energy. Thank you for taking action on clean energy in Kansas!Thank YOU for taking action on climate and energy in Kansas.
