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.

On April 17, 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Subtitle D regulations regarding the management of Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) generated by electrical utilities. This new rule, effective October 19, 2015, establishes minimum standards for the management and disposal of CCR by the generators of these industrial wastes. The requirements of the rule will be phased in over a multi-year period. EPA’s CCR regulations are applicable to the CCR management practices at the Westar Jeffrey Energy Center, Lawrence Energy Center, and Tecumseh Energy Center. These sites have been and will continue to be regulated under Kansas state laws, regulations, and permits.
As part of the rule EPA has finalized a requirement for owners and operators of any CCR unit to establish and maintain a publicly accessible Internet site. Internet postings are required by several sections of the rule. The required postings can be found by following the links below. Please direct any questions via email to WestarCCR@westarenergy.com.
