Public Hearings and Comment Period on Kansas Gas Service rate increase request

Kansas Gas Service has filed an application with the Kansas Corporation Commission requesting a $58.1 million net increase in base rates related to the fixed monthly customer charge and the gas delivery charge. If approved, the average monthly residential bill will increase by approximately $6.71 (10.41%) for customers who use less natural gas (73 Mcf or less per year) and $9.48 (8.25%) for those who use more natural gas (more than 73 Mcf per year).

The Commission held two public hearings to provide Kansas Gas Service customers an opportunity to learn more about the proposed rates, ask questions and make comments. Recordings of the meetings, held in Topeka and Wichita, are available on the KCC YouTube channel.

Public Comments will be accepted through 5 p.m. Central, August 5, 2024.
