SERCC Mission

In April 2002, Kansas Governor Bill Graves, by Executive Order No. 2002-04, established the State Energy Resources Coordination Council. The Council was created with the purpose to collect and compile information pertaining to the availability, production and use of energy in Kansas; to formulate an initial comprehensive state energy plan and; to advise the Governor and Legislature of energy trends in production, consumption and any tax or revenue implications.

The Council will review and modify the state energy plan, and report its findings and recommendations annually. The Council's first report was submitted to the Governor on January 13, 2003 (See below, right).
