A Kansas City-based alternative energy company will protest a request by KCP&L to stop giving solar rebates in Missouri. The utility calculates the rebates are too costly.
The program is an outgrowth of 2008 passage of Proposition C to support a renewable energy standard. It required utilities to start offering solar rebates in 2010 and indefinitely.
KCP&L argued funds have been depleted, and the utility has requested permission to stop offering solar rebates after September 3.
Compared to other areas of the country, Missouri and Kansas have it pretty good when it comes to energy pricing.
