The Kansas Corporation Commission has scheduled a series of informational workshops to discuss the topic of resource adequacy.

These considerations include the intermittency of renewable resources, fuel availability and cost for thermal generation, and outage rates for all generation types. ach workshop will feature experts on resource adequacy sharing information and answering questions from KCC Commissioners and staff.
