Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) updates
The Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) regulates Investor Owned Utilities and provides education to the general public. Climate + Energy project engages with the KCC by convening in dockets, providing education to commissioners and staff, and encouraging more transparent and accessible engagement for the public at the KCC. The KCC is composed of administrative staff and three Governor appointed commissioners. Ultimately, decisions at the KCC play a large role in shaping energy policy. Learn more at kcc.ks.gov.
Climate + Energy Project and the Clean Energy Business Council work with the Kansas legislautre to advance climate and clean energy policies for Kansas. During the legislative session, CEP provides legislative updates and action alerts to encourage people to take action on important climate legislation. Year round, CEP works with coalitions to research, vet, and develop climate policies throughout the year. Lastly, we provide education for clean energy policy to legislators throughout the year.
Climate + Energy Project engages and partners with agencies all across Kansas for clean energy advocacy. Recently, CEP co-hosted a series of events on wind energy with Kansas Department of Commerce, Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism, and others to educate county officials on wind energy education.
