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., Dec. 4, 2018 – Eligible Westar Energy customers have received credits related to savings from the Westar Energy-Great Plains Energy (KCP&L) merger and from the Tax Cut and Jobs Act.
Credits were applied to accounts for residential customers with active service as of Dec. 1, 2018. For residential customers the credits are about $50 – about $15 related to merger savings and about $35 related to tax savings. The credit amounts for commercial and industrial customers varied based on their electricity use between November 2017 and October 2018. Credits will appear on Westar Energy bills in December or January, depending on when a customer’s bill is issued.
The credits resulted from agreements reached in proceedings at the Kansas Corporation Commission this year approving the merger and setting Westar Energy rates. The merger savings credit is the first of five annual credits. The tax savings credit is a one-time credit, as ongoing tax savings were calculated into prices with the recent price review.
