CEP by the Numbers!

4 years ago | Dec 21, 2015
Happy Holidays from all of us here at CEP! 
The Climate + Energy Project is known as the energy and climate policy leader in Kansas, but we cannot make the realistic, yet visionary changes we need without your help. When you support CEP, you help create lasting improvements in our clean energy economy, please make a contribution today.

  • ONE Clean Power Plan will dramatically reduce carbon emissions from power plants, resulting in improved air quality, better public health, and a clear path to a clean energy future.  CEP is actively educating Kansans about the benefits of the Clean Power Plan and facilitating the creation of a Clean Power Plan Blueprint that integrates energy efficiency.
  • CEP intervened in TWO utility rate cases, Westar and KCP&L, to advocate for fair rate structures that do not restrict renewable energy.  The KCC will open a generic docket to address distributed generation, and you can bet that CEP will be there advocating for clean energy!
  • Our THREE dedicated staff works tirelessly to find practical solutions for a clean energy future.
  • FOUR wonderful board members continue to guide CEP's activities.  Might you be the fifth?
  • After the longest legislative session in Kansas history, the highly successful Renewable Portfolio Standards changed from a requirement to a goal.  We wish they would have increased the RPS to continue encouraging renewables in Kansas, but, despite intense pressure, the RPS succeeded in meeting the standards of 20% by 2020 FIVE years ahead of schedule. That's a win! 
  • It has been SIX months since Olga Khakova joined CEP.  She is a great asset to our team! 
  • In collaboration with local groups across the state, CEP hostedSEVEN Clean Power Plan briefings in October to educate Kansans on the benefits and opportunities of the CPP.  Let us know if you want to host a briefing in your area! 
  • CEP Program Director, Rachel Myslivy, was one of EIGHT people honored with a Kansas Association of Conservation and Environmental Education Leadership Award. 
  • NINE (6 months of 3 day) networking events for Dorothy Barnett, CEP Executive Director, as part of the Leadership Kansas class of 2015. 
  • TEN thousand dollar Leadership Transformation grant from the Kansas Leadership Center will provide excellent leadership training to CEP staff. 
  • Governor Brownback recognized ELEVEN innovative farmers and ranchers with CEP's Water + Energy Progress Awards. 
  • For TWELVE months, CEP worked non-stop to create a clean energy future in Kansas.
Your contributions to CEP help make this and much more possible.  CEP educates Kansans on pressing energy issues, rallies citizens around clean energy policies, and convenes diverse groups to find common ground solutions.  We can't do it without you.   Thank you.
