“Evergy, the largest
electric utility in Kansas, needed to make a plan because the Kansas Supreme
Court shot down a previous solar rate. Meantime, the utility insists it needs
to recover the cost of having electricity on demand for solar-equipped homes
that don’t buy many kilowatts.”
Then gas stations should receive a subsidy for gasoline NOT sold. What this statement says is that you DO NOT have freedom to choose LESS consumption. Here is the real reason for the new Evergy efficient plan:“The state’s largest utility wants to charge
customers with solar panels about $25 a month, even if their homes pull almost
no electricity off the grid.”
Great Plains is utilizing the basic principles of socialism in their offering where a system's users pay for what
someone else doesn’t use. https://eu.cjonline.com/story/news/politics/state/2020/11/01/evergy-wants-to-charge-everyone-to-collect-more-from-solar-users/114603258/ “Graham
has had solar panels on his house since about 2015. He said it’s unfair that
Evergy would make him pay more money for reducing demand on the company’s
system. He also said the constant rate changes make him want to disconnect from
the grid entirely.”
This is likely what it
will take, people getting off the grid to keep the globalist utility barons from bankrupting
everyone. Remember you WILL HAVE NO SAY once this
plan passes the KCC.
“The electric utility, which serves
1.2 million customers in Kansas and Missouri, filed a plan with Kansas
regulators last week to invest in a host of energy efficiency programs for business and residential customers. “Evergy’s
plan would add to the fees on customers’ bills to offer programs such as
weatherization for low-income residents, energy audits to educate customers
about their usage, and rebates to encourage customers to invest in more
energy-efficient water heaters and air conditioners…Their bills would go up
slightly in the coming years....Programs such as financing
improvements through residents’ energy bills, offering incentives for local
plumbers and hardware stores to stock energy-efficient appliances, and giving
out smart thermostats are commonly offered by utility companies. Evergy has a
slate of programs for Missouri customers, but its Kansas offerings are far more
Kansas doesn't have the population base that Missouri has so more creative means of how to distribute costs are required.Really? And Isn't this an individual decison rather than a collective one? How is it my responsibility to pay for someone elses's Non energy usage, choice of appliances to sell or energy use education? These brainless autocrons operating large utility systems have no concept of how the free market functions; they can only devise authoritarian and collective methods of garnering revenue and then coerce politicians and regulators into complying. Slightly increase? Solar
panels would be $3.00 per kilowatt installed. If you have 10 kilowatts of solar
panels installed that would amount to another $30 per month in fees. What sense does this make? “Bradley
Lutz, Evergy’s director of regulatory affairs, said in testimony filed at the
KCC that if the company can’t charge solar customers exclusively, then everyone
will have to pay the difference.” This is certainly an innovative approach, penalizing customers who devise mehods of reducing utility demand. Does anyone still believe this is about energy conservation or reducing global warming?
Look at one of Evergy’s typical bills; it’s already
full of fees, taxes and incidental charges. Here are a few examples FROM MY own

Before Great Plains, a global power consortium,
bought KCPL and created EVERGY,
just KCPL. Read about their earlier SMART” energy
saver plan in my sitejabber report at https://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/kcpl.com#1
and find out how Missouri Public Service has accepted KCPL’s smart device spy plan and not only is an extension of
the original five year plan, but will also roll in new features.And Don’t think government will be idle: “Smart” thermostats in
Texas being remotely controlled by government to limit energy usage.
And this is the end of free choice,
"...But, I only agreed to a four hour shutoff.
" No you agreed to let them have COMPLETE control of your home temperature and you will swelter so they can improve their unit profitability.
energy programs are designed to keep one constantly upgrading his or her home and is part of the UN’s sustainable development program. This plan will simply increase existing charges plus add
new ones. Notice that this plan has no opt out feature and you will pay more until you comply. Your bill helps provide remuneration for utility investors. Expect the bill to also include anticipated
carbon footprint costs, a backdoor for implementing the failed EPA carbon credits
program. After all, you really don’t own
your home, you have government and other special interests defining what your home environment may be and what you
can have and do.
A smart thermostat is the kind
enabling the utility to control your AC or heating system, not a good idea
under the best of circumstances. And rest
assured this will involve reducing your carbon footprint as defined by the
utility. “KCPL is already committed to reducing its footprint. Evergy is already
on a path to reduce its carbon footprint. he company plans to retire all coal operations at the Lawrence Energy Center by
the end of 2023 and expects to achieve net-zero emissions by 2045.”
Once you eliminate fossil fuels, costs will go sky high. Keep in mind that if
Evergy were truly offering choices they wouldn’t be going to the KCC for
approval. Zero emissions means there must be added (low yield) green energy programs to supplement retired fossil plants. And remember weather is an important factor, wind turbines were inoperable in the cold that decended on Texas. The fact
is we don’t have an environmental crisis
, climate change is an absolute hoax;
it’s just an elaborate plan to implement economic control with a social credit
system all for the benefit of global investors. None of their dooms day predictions were accurate. Climate
Experts are Zero out of 41 doomsday global warming predictions !
programs are designed to keep one constantly adjusting his or her home upwards

a penalty (along with inflation) until you comply. Expect the bill to reflect your anticipated

a social credit plan like what the Chinese communist party used for forcing
consumers to comply with their lopsided agenda.
Either upgrade your system or pay penalties in the form of higher rates until
you meet their standards.
Evergy is supposedly
in business to sell power at affordable prices, not micromanaging consumers to support their global environmental
policies and implement carbon controls.
