Ratemaking and Overviews

Ratemaking process 

Before Evergy can change rates, we must complete a process called a rate case. The rate case process gives the commission and the public the opportunity to review the request and learn why Evergy's requested a rate change. Learn why rates are regulated by commissions.

If our costs indicate that we need to ask for a rate change, we do this by filing a request to the respective state utility commission for review and approval. This process, referred to as a rate case, provides an opportunity for the state utility commission to audit the filing, and customers and other interested parties to submit comments and ask questions about the requested change.
