Authorizing the City Manager to execute addendums to Renewables Direct Participation Agreements with Evergy for the purchase of electric energy for the Missouri West and Missouri Metro account areas.


FINANCE, GOVERNANCE AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Councilmember Shields testified on this ordinance, In late 2018 the MO Public Services Commission approved a Renewables Direct Program request from KCPL (Evergy). This allows Evergy to offer electricity to its largest users that will be generated from new wind farms, 100-200 MW in capacity, that will be constructed after sufficient committments for the electricity it will generate. All metered electricity accounts by the City are covered by two participation agremeents that were signed in May 2019, as approved to execute in Ordinance #190233: one each for the Missouri Metro (originally KCP&L) and Missouri West (originally GMO) area accounts. The cost will be the same base charge that would be applicable without the Participation Agreement + a Renewable Adjustment (RA). The RA is the difference between the Subscription Charge of $17.00/MWh (Missouri West) and $16.14/MWh (Missouri Metro) and the market price at the point of delivery of the electricity from the two new wind farms into the grid via the Southwest Power Pool. Therefore, the RA may be positive or negative, depending upon market prices. Since January 2015 the market has averaged >$20/MWh, which would have made the cost of electricity lower had the City been operating under the terms of the proposed participation agreement. However, past performance is no guarantee of future results. Although we anticipate some volatility in the RA over the term of the agreement, the City should see some cost savings on its electricity costs, in addition to the benefits of further reducing its carbon footprint and making significant progress on achieving the City's GHG emisison reduction goals as adopted in Resolution #200005, May 2020. The amendments address a change in term length for the Missouri West territory based upon the developers restriction to 15 years for the Cimmaron Bend III resource

Authorizing an amendment to the Amended and Restated Service Contract between the Little Blue Valley Sewer District and Kansas City, Missouri, to amend the rate methodology for calculating sewer charges imposed by the District on all consumers.


FINANCE, GOVERNANCE AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Sean Hennessy, Water Department, testified on this ordinance. Kansas City City Council passed Ordinance No. 011697 on December 20, 2001 approving an agreement between the City and the Little Blue Valley Sewer District ("District") for the treatment of wastewater received by the District from Kansas City. The current agreement outlines the methodology by which rates for sewer service are calculated using a linear projection of sewer flow data for the last 20 quarters (5 years) to project flow contributions for the coming year. Unfortunately, this projected flow is subject to flow variations due to wet weather, making the projected value unpredictable and potentially inaccurate. As a result, the District is changing its rate methodology from the 20 quarter linear projection to a 5 year rolling average, applied to all its customers. This ordinance will authorize that amendment to the Amended and Restated Services Contract.
