Environmentalists in Kansas got something of a slap in the face this week as Evergy, the state’s largest electricity utility, revealed a cutback in clean energy plans.

Instead, it plans to keep open its oldest coal plant for years to come and has no plans to add solar power until 2026, reported the Kansas Reflector. The Lawrence coal plant will stay open until 2028.

The revelations came in in filings with regulators in Kansas and Missouri where Evergy serves 1.6 million customers.
