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.

Copper theft is a dangerous crime. It puts lives at risk, causes power outages and increases the costs of doing business. (Another dangerous crime is energy theft.)
Criminals are getting away with a handful of copper and causing many thousands of dollars in damage. If you see something suspicious, please report it immediately to 911. Suspicious activity could include:
A rise in scrap metal prices is making copper attractive to thieves.
Substations are areas where only authorized Westar personnel should enter. High-voltage equipment should only be handled by trained professionals.
Westar has implemented a number of measures to deter thefts.
Westar employees and contractors wear protective gear such as marked hard hats and safety glasses. Authorized vehicles display the company name or logo. Westar personnel will not hesitate to show identification if asked.
Copper thefts that have occurred may be reported to the Westar Energy Integrity Hotline at 877-248-1184.
