Save Kansas Solar Update - Westar Tariff Filed

1 year ago | Jun 05, 2019
By: Jamie Hofling

Westar's tariff to grandfather in existing solar customers was filed on May 17th. We're now awaiting the Kansas Corporation Commission's response to that request. Regarding Evergy's commitment to negotiate a path forward for solar in Kansas with the Clean Energy Business Council - the council anticipates those meetings will begin mid June. Click here to be directed to Westar's filing.

We do not yet have word on when the KCP&L tariff will be filed.


Stay tuned!


Your Voice Matters - Solar Q&A


Are there solar installation assistance programs for low-income Kansans? I live in Lawrence, Kansas.


A: Kansas does not currently have a solar assistance program, we hope that will change in the near future. To help curb energy costs Kansas does have weatherization financial assistance available to income eligible Kansans. If you haven't already weatherized your home you might consider these low income program options to reduce energy consumption. The two options in Lawrence are through ECKAN and the city of Lawrence
