We believe one person can make a difference. In fact, we know they can.

Many of us desire to do more to protect our environment. So, through your encouragement, we keep expanding our renewable energy programs, providing more options and flexibility. Along the way, renewable energy is also becoming more affordable. The more we produce on a large scale, the more it reduces the cost of renewable energy. This is good for you and for Kansas.
You don’t have to stop there, though. We think you should have even more renewable options. If you want to have some or all of your power from a renewable energy source, we offer different options to meet your needs. You can start by exploring our two universal renewable energy options: Westar Wind and Community Solar.
By participating, you can affordably increase how much of your power comes from the wind – one of Kansas’ most plentiful renewable resources – up to 100%. The average Westar customer can choose to go 100% renewable for about $2.50 more per month. Whether you own a home or rent an apartment, Westar Wind offers an easy way to support renewable energy.

With the promise of expanding your renewable energy, we are introducing new and exciting universal solar projects that will allow you to receive your power from solar without having to install panels. This option also offers the advantage of receiving your power at a fixed price for up to 20 years. Want to join in? Explore your options and our growing solar initiatives.
