The Kansas Gas Service is asking the Kansas Corporation Commission for a $28 million increase in its net base rate. The utility’s last rate increase was approved in 2012.

If the request is approved, Kansas Gas Service says the average residential customer's bill would increase by 7.2 percent. Dawn Ewing with the Kansas Gas Service says that’s about $4.34 per month for residential customers.

“This proposal allows us to continue to invest in our natural gas system and provide the safe and reliable service that our customers depend on, ” he says.

KS Ratepayers Board: KGS Rate Hike Is Fair

Dec 10, 2012

The Citizens Utility Ratepayers Board, a consumer advocacy agency for utility customers, says the agreement recently reached on a Kansas Gas Service rate hike was a fair one.

David Springee, an attorney with CURB, says it's actually a significantly lower increase than the utility had requested.

"There are certain things, like the Kansas Gas Service asked for a 10.75 shareholder profit to be built into rates," says Springee.

The Kansas Gas Service says the rate hike is fair; Sorgum based fuel qualifies as renewable energy source; Jenkins says it won't be easy for Kansas to retake ag seat.
