The Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) will hold a public hearing to gather public comment on KCP&L's rate case (docket # 18-KCPE-480-RTS).


Aug. 23, 2018, 6-8 p.m. 

 KU Edwards Campus - BEST Conference Center 

12600 Quivira Road, Overland Park, KS


In the rate case KCP&L is requesting several rate design changes, some of which would have a positive outcome for clean energy in our state. However, they are also requesting demand charges that would negatively impact residential customers' decision to add rooftop solar.


For those unable to attend in person, the hearing will be broadcast live on the Commission’s website. A recording will be posted Aug. 30. The KCC is also accepting public comments from Kansans through Oct. 17, 2018, at 5 p.m. CDT. They may be submitted online, by phone at 1-800-662-0027, or by snail mail.


If you have questions about this rate case please email Jamie at


What Are Demand Charges? Demand charges are confusing and unpredictable for homeowners and undermine the value of energy conservation, discouraging homeowners from choosing solar to power their homes. Watch the short video below to learn more.
