Letter to the editor: Encourage renewables

To the editor:

Approximately 10% of Lawrence households pay a little extra ($0.0025/kWh or about 3.4%) for electricity that’s generated from renewable sources such as wind. These consumers realize that since the federal and state governments are not working to reduce significantly greenhouse gases, which are responsible for climate change, then they will have to take personal responsibility. To encourage more Lawrence residents to join Evergy’s Renewable Energy Program, the city could provide customers $50 coupons that could be submitted to Evergy if they sign up for the program.
