Goal: Promote market-driven solutions to reduce energy costs

The Kansas Chamber supports efforts to maintain a comprehensive energy policy that balances a diverse portfolio of energy sources and technologies, and will:

  • Avoid picking winners and losers among energy sources and technologies.
  • Support incentives for businesses to voluntarily utilize energy more efficiently versus penalties and/or mandates.
  • Oppose mandates and policies that increase business costs when sourcing energy.
  • Support efforts to limit or block Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations which overreach and impose undue expense and regulatory burdens on Kansas businesses and industries.
  • Support review and reform of current rate-making policies and processes to ensure fairness and equity among ratepayer classes.
  • Promote the development of market-driven energy technologies.
