Letters to the editor on energy standard, Ike airport, Issa

The renewable portfolio standard is a mandate crafted under former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ voluntary guidelines for energy companies. Those restrictions were then signed by Gov. Mark Parkinson in 2009. The RPS dictated that 10 percent of Kansas’ energy was to be derived from renewable sources by 2010. Additional regulations stipulate that the rates increase to 15 percent in 2015 and 20 percent in 2020.
