For nearly two decades, Green‑e Energy has provided oversight for voluntary renewable energy transactions in North America. (See Green-e Energy's explanation of their certification.)
Renewable Energy is available to customers participating in this voluntary renewable energy program offered by Westar. Customer's enrollment will continue unless terminated by the customer or by the Company upon 30 days' notice.
This offer is applicable to any customer using electric service supplied at one point of delivery. Please note that backup, breakdown, stand-by, supplemental, short term, resale, or shared electric services are not available under this rate schedule.
The monthly bill for the average residential customer would only increase by about 25¢ per month for a 10% purchase of renewable energy.
Westar Wind Charges are in addition to the charges in the Monthly Bill section of the applicable Rate Schedule under which the customer takes electric service.
The Sustainability Program Option is available to Westar customers with proper certification.
Additionally, Westar will reduce the Renewable Energy Charge shown above for customers obtaining Silver, Gold, or Platinum LEED certification from the US Green Building Council.
Westar may also reduce the Renewable Energy Charge based on the customer's commitment to sustainable energy initiatives through participation in other local or state sustainability initiatives, as indicated below. The reduction to the standard Renewable Energy Charge shall not exceed 30%.
