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., Oct. 5, 2017 – Westar Energy employees set a record this year, donating more than $586,000 to area organizations through the annual Your Gift, Your Choice fund-raising drive. With the company match, more than $1.1 million will be donated to charities in 2018.
“I’m proud of our employees as they readily give their treasure and their talent to local charities,” Mark Ruelle, president and chief executive officer, said. “We set goals of increased giving and increased participation again this year, and they met both. Westar Energy is happy to match their gift. It’s a great investment in our community.”
Your Gift, Your Choice provides employees the opportunity to suggest charities they would like included as potential recipients of employee giving. During the campaign, employees select from organizations in their area to direct their pledge and the company match. This year more than 70 percent of employees made pledges and donations will go to more than 90 area charities.
