The Average Payment Plan can help reduce your high bills in summer and winter and make it easier to manage your monthly bill. The plan allows you to pay a monthly bill on the average cost of your most recent 12-month period. The amount due may vary slightly month to month but if you were signed up for Average Payment, your bill for this month would have only been Label and then every bill in the coming months would be close to that same amount. It’s not too late to sign up for your Label bill.

Topeka, Kan., March 16, 2016 – Westar Energy will be all green, all day for St. Patrick’s Day.
“We are committed to providing clean, reliable energy to our customers. To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we’ll meet all of our customers’ electricity needs with green energy,” said Mark Ruelle, president and chief executive officer. “We already produce a significant amount of energy from the wind. By the end of this year, about one third of our residential and small business customers’ energy will come from green power, produced in Kansas by Kansans.”
Customers will use about 17,500 megawatt-hours of electricity on St. Patrick’s Day. Kansas’ March winds will provide a good portion of that energy, and Westar will use renewable energy credits to fill in any gap.
While Westar will go 100 percent green on St. Patrick’s Day, Westar customers have that choice every day through a program called Westar Wind. With it they can choose any additional percentage of their electricity to be renewable. For the average household, choosing to have their electricity fully provided by wind energy costs about an extra $2.50 per month. Signing up is easy when customers log into their Westar Energy account online at www.westarenergy.com or call 1-800-383-1183.
