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.

It is the world's largest machine: the power grid that delivers energy to you.
At our power plants, we work to produce the power that fuels your home or business. The power grid does the rest of the work, bringing that power to you safely and reliably.
The power grid is a complex machine composed of power plants and transformers connected by over 450,000 miles of transmission lines. It provides you with reliable electricity 24/7. Westar’s portion of the power grid covers more than 35,000 miles of transmission and distribution lines.
The power grid is much more than electricity delivery.
Nearly everyone relies on the power grid to provide energy – even people who generate their own electricity. For example, if someone uses solar panels on their homes, the power grid provides energy at night or when it is not sunny. It also allows for solar panels to send energy back to the power grid when the panels produce more electricity than is being used.
