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.

Westar Energy currently operates the Tecumseh Energy Center (TEC), located in Tecumseh, Kansas, which consists of two operational coal-fired electric generating units. Coal is used as the primary fuel for TEC. Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) associated with burning coal include bottom ash and fly ash. CCR, along with minor amounts of other miscellaneous waste, are currently placed in an on-site active combustion byproduct landfill located on TEC property. This combustion byproduct landfill is permitted under Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), Bureau of Waste Management (BWM), Permit No. 322.
In addition to the landfill, TEC operates an active surface impoundment for the collection, processing, and subsequent removal of bottom ash. The impoundment is periodically emptied and all permanent storage is at the 322 dry landfill.
