Kansas has the highest electric rates in the region.

That's a problem the Governor, KCC

and Legislature need to address.


Kansas is a high-cost energy state, and that's a problem. 

Electric rates have increased nearly 70% since 2007.

We all pay too much: homeowners and renters, businesses, schools, hospitals and manufacturers -- we all pay too much for electricity in Kansas.  After a decade of constant rate increases, Kansas now has the highest rates of any of the surrounding states. This must stop.

Regulators, legislators and the governor need to work with consumers, utilities and other stakeholders to figure out a way to make Kansas rates competitive with neighboring states.

Even as we work to lower rates, Evergy is working to push them higher.  Help us as we work to lower electric rates in Kansas.
