National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has finalized rules for the emission standards for hazardous air pollutants emitted by reciprocating internal combustion engines which impact municipal power plants and their generating equipment. 



Municipal Net Metering Policy
The sample net metering policy was developed by a KMU task force as a policy that can be voluntarily adopted and administered by member utilities. The policy provides guidelines for the connection and metering of customer-owned generation. The new policy provides several different policy options to accommodate the needs and interests of varying size of public power systems.

During the 2009 session of the Kansas Legislature, a compromise was reached between Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson and Sunflower Electric Power Corporation regarding the construction of a new Holcomb coal-fired power plant in southwest Kansas. The legislation that incorporated that compromise also included language that created the “Net Metering and Easy Connection Act.” This act requires investor-owned electric utilities in the state of Kansas to offer net metering to their customers.

While municipal utilities and rural electric cooperatives are exempt from the specifics of the new net metering act, they have been called upon by the Governor and his administration to offer net metering to their customers on a voluntary basis. Kansas Electric Cooperatives, the statewide association for rural electric cooperatives, has developed a net metering rider that has been voluntarily adopted by many of their member systems.
