On June 10, 2015, Westar Energy issued a Request for Proposals for renewable energy resources through power purchase agreements (PPA) to provide generation by the 4th quarter 2016. Westar's ultimate decision to add more renewable resources will hinge on overall cost, reliability, adequate transmission capacity to deliver the energy to its customers, the status of state and federal policy on renewable resources, and regulatory treatment. Westar will give preference to projects in Kansas.
