KANSANS FOR AFFORDABLE ENERGY
 

Kansans for Affordable Energy (KAE) was set up in October 2007 by a group of Kansas businessmen in reaction to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) denying the air quality permit for the two proposed 700-megawatt generators at the Sunflower Electric Power Corporation. The two local Garden City businessmen, Bob Kreutzer and John Doll, who formed the Kansans For Affordable Energy, stated that they hoped KAE could present "the rest of the story" when it comes to using coal as a base load energy supply for the area and nation.

Kansans for Affordable Energy is a pro-coal lobbying group that has received financial support from Sunflower Electric Power, a Kansas-based utility company, and Peabody Energy, the world’s largest private coal corporation.
