Evergy’s $35 minimum bill would raise rates on nearly 200,000 Kansans
Submit a Public Comment Opposing Evergy’s $35 Minimum Bill!
On November 5th, nearly 50 Kansans made their voices heard at the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) hearing about Evergy’s proposed grid access fee and $35 minimum bill. We were heartened by the strong engagement and resounding opposition that Kansans voiced.
We recently learned that the KCC staff is recommending Evergy’s minimum bill, which would increase rates on impacted customers. Watch our information session that addresses the issues with the minimum bill, and share with your friends and colleagues.
According to Evergy’s own testimony, their minimum bill would impact nearly 130,000 customers making less than $24,000/year. Additionally, they state that their ideal minimum bill is $77. If the KCC approves this $35 minimum bill, a $77 minimum bill could be around the corner. Read more in our FAQ.
As Rabbi Moti Rieber with Kansas Interfaith Action recently wrote: “In this time of a pandemic and recession, the last thing Evergy’s customers need is another rate increase to pad the utility’s bottom line.”
