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.

As a regulated utility, Westar Energy follows an established process determined by the state of Kansas to request changes to its prices to keep them aligned with costs. The Kansas Corporation Commission oversees this process. Anytime we need to adjust our rates, we must file a request and justification to the KCC, which then starts an eight-month process called a rate case to review the request and hear from interested people and organizations. Nearly all documents related to a rate case are public and available for review at the KCC website.
