More than 15 years ago, Westar began exploring renewable energy sources with the first large-scale wind turbines in Kansas and building alternatives to traditional fuels. Today, we are making significant progress into reliable, affordable and clean energy for Kansas.
In only 3 years, we've more than tripled the energy we produce from renewable sources. In 2014, we produced 10% of the energy used by our homes and businesses from renewable sources. By the end of 2016, nearly 1/3 of that energy will come from renewables.
