What To Expect on Your Next Energy Bill
Posted on Feb 28th, 2021
 
Recent severe cold weather events may have you concerned about your next energy bill. Your electric rates won’t increase next month, but your bill may be higher, depending on how much electricity you used.
 
 
Need help paying your bill? More funding is now available to assist with utility bills. Apply today
 
How does your electric rate work?
 
The cost you see on your bill varies according to how much energy you use in a month — and your rate plan. If you're enrolled in our Standard Plan click here
 
In the winter, as you use more energy, rates go down. Very cold weather may result in higher electricity usage, especially if you use electricity to heat your home.
 
In the summer (when it costs more to generate energy), it's the opposite — rates go up the more energy you use.
 
No matter the season, monitor your energy usage regularly to save energy and money.
Copper Wire Thefts
Posted on Feb 27th, 2021
 
Area law enforcement agencies are reporting a rash of copper thefts in which neighborhoods are being targeted by thieves.  Increased patrols and other tactics in order to combat this problem.
 
This paid off recently when an officer on the night shift noticed a suspicious car and conducted a traffic stop on a simple violation. Great police work led to the discovery of stolen copper wire in the vehicle and other evidence tied to these crimes.
 
If you see someone tampering with light poles, particularly in sparsely populated parts of town, please call 911 to report this suspicious activity. Legitimate utility workers should be in marked vehicles (ex. City of Lenexa, Shawnee, or Evergy) and would generally not be working after normal business hours.
 
Note that thieves may even wear reflective or other "utility worker" types of clothing while committing these crimes.

Update from Kansas Gas Service
Posted on Feb 24th, 2021
 
We’ve received many questions asking about rates increasing next month and the impact higher natural gas prices could have on your bill. There’s a lot of misinformation circulating out there, so we would like to provide you with the facts and with what we know at this time.

Below, we’ve gathered the five most commonly asked questions and did our best to answer them. We know this doesn’t answer everything, but we hope it will give you some assurance on our commitment to keep you informed as the situation develops.

Do I have to continue to conserve or are things back to normal?
Residential customers can return to normal natural gas usage. We want to thank you for your conservation efforts. Your efforts helped us avoid widespread outages during the extreme weather event.  
 
Will my bill be higher?
Your bill may be higher based on the amount of gas you used during the historic cold temperatures. 

Your monthly bill is a combination of the amount of gas you use and the cost of gas. The extreme weather caused many customers to use more gas for heating their homes than they may have in prior years. The higher amount of gas used will be reflected on your bill, regardless of the price of gas. While we do not markup the price of natural gas, these events will have an impact on customer bills. If you conserved energy during the weather event, your bill will most likely be lower than it would have been otherwise.

How much will my bill increase?
Honestly, it’s too early to tell. At this time, we can’t quantify what the impact on customer bills will be. We experienced much higher natural gas demand which resulted in a significant increase in natural gas market prices on a portion of the supply we purchased during this period.

What are you doing to help reduce the impact to customer bills?
Unlike some other utilities, Kansas Gas Service has the ability to work with our regulators to spread these high gas costs out over several months. 

The Kansas Corporation Commission has issued an order that authorizes natural gas and electric utilities to defer any extraordinary costs incurred associated with ensuring that customers continued to receive service during the cold weather event. KGS will make a filing with the KCC which includes a plan to minimize the financial impact of the cold weather event on customers over a reasonable period of time.  

If you have concerns when you get your bill, we will work with you to help find options for payment. There are a number of payment options and resources that we offer customers, and we will commit to doing what we can to help you.

What can I do to minimize the impact to my bill?
One important thing you can do right now to minimize the amount of your bill is to follow the conservation tips that we’ve been communicating throughout this extreme winter event. Following the tips we listed in  this infographic can help you conserve in a number of different places around your home.

While these answers may not provide you with the level of details you’re looking for right now, you should know that payment options are available. 

Our Average Payment Plan helps reduce the fluctuations of your monthly gas bill and makes budgeting easier. The Average Payment Plan is based on a 12-month rolling average of your natural gas bill and is a way to reduce the volatility of seasonal energy expenses by spreading out the cost throughout the year. 

You can enroll by logging into your account. If you don’t already have online account access, you can sign up today. It’s quick, easy and let’s you manage your account without having to call.

We also partner with financial assistance agencies throughout the communities we serve that manage funds for eligible customers that need help paying their utility bills. Visit kansasgasservice.com/cares for more details.

As we get more information, we will communicate it to you and post to our website and social media channels. 

Thank you again for everything you did to help conserve during the extreme weather event. You played a big part in helping us avoid any widespread gas outages.
 
If you have any questions about the information provided in this email, please connect with us on FacebookTwitter or email us at media@kansasgasservice.com.
 
As always, if you smell gas, leave the area immediately, then call 911 and call 888-482-4950. We will respond as quickly and as safely as conditions allow.

Prevent Catalytic Converter Thefts
Posted on Feb 19th, 2021
 
Over the last couple of months, the Lenexa Police Department has seen a dramatic increase in thefts of catalytic converters around Lenexa. This is primarily occurring at businesses that have a fleet of vehicles that are parked on-site overnight. While most any type of vehicle is at risk, lately we are seeing thieves targeting work vans, trucks and larger utility-style work vehicles. 
 
Stealing a catalytic converter only takes a few seconds, but can be expensive to replace and costs businesses valuable time while their fleet vehicles are out of service.
 
Here are few tips to help combat this crime.
 
Park fleet vehicles in a well-lit area of the property.
 
Install exterior camera systems and have them point to the property entrances, exits and the areas where fleet vehicles are parked overnight. Learn more about our Community Video Partnership.
 
If you have an existing camera system, be sure that it is functional. 
 
Use heat-resistant spray paint and stencils to create identifiers specific to your company on your catalytic converters. This could include company name, initials, last four digits of the vehicles VIN or some other unique marking. This marking could serve as a deterrent to potential thieves, or in the event the catalytic converter is stolen, can help identify it as such to scrap yards or other law enforcement. Check with your local mechanic, as many provide this catalytic converter etching service.
 
Report thefts or attempted thefts as soon as possible to the Lenexa Police Department. Our non-emergency number is 913.477.7301.
 
Vehicles that have had their catalytic converter stolen will be extremely loud when started, and the noise will grow louder when pressing the gas pedal. Evidence left behind by thieves could include saw blades, gloves, flashlights and even discarded cigarette butts underneath or around your fleet vehicles.

Chewology Chef Joshua Springer will switch up the flavorful brunch courses each weekend.

Red Kitchen’s Saturday brunch menu will spice things up with rotating authentic Mexican brunch items each week. Check their social media accounts weekly for updates. On Sunday, their brunch item will be beef birria tacos and consommé. The tacos are made of two corn tortillas bathed in birria stock and fried until crispy, then filled with beef and cheese. Dip your tacos in the cilantro-onion beef stock consommé, or sip the savory soup with a spoon. 

Kate Smith Soirée will offer a scrumptious assortment of pastries each week. Try anything from quiche to sweet and savory scones to a variety of sweet breads in flavors like banana, pumpkin, lemon blueberry and double chocolate zucchini.
