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. – Nov. 19 – The City of Baldwin City is adding solar to its energy mix through an
agreement with Westar Energy. The Baldwin City mayor will sign the agreement at 6 p.m. Nov. 20
at the Baldwin City Library, 800 7th St., Baldwin City, preceding the Baldwin City Council Meeting.
Media are invited to attend.
Baldwin City will purchase energy from the 1 megawatt solar array that Westar Energy will own and
operate. The array will be next to the city’s new public utilities building at 1100 Orange St. in
Baldwin City and construction will begin in the next few weeks. The array is scheduled to be
complete summer 2019.
“I am proud and excited for this day to be here,” Baldwin City Mayor Casey Simoneau said.
“Baldwin City will be one of the smallest, greenest municipality owned utilities in the State of Kansas
once this solar farm is completed. Our current council and city staff have been working on
numerous green energy initiatives throughout this year. We currently purchase wind and hydro
energy and with this we will now be producing solar in our backyard. We have increased the net
metering lid for citizens and businesses and have been diligent to ensure we are continuing to
utilize green energy to help control our production costs for our citizens.”
“Westar appreciates the opportunity to help Baldwin City meet its residents’ energy needs with
sustainable sources that are located in the community,” said John Bridson, vice president,
Westar Energy offers comprehensive energy management solutions, asset optimization, risk
management and advisory services and renewable energy options to utilities, large industrial
customers and independent power producers.
