Since the early days of generation at Westar, we have sought to keep customers’ costs low by maintaining flexibility. Several of our generating facilities can be powered from more than one fuel source. Today, new energy sources provide environmentally friendly, low-cost energy. Along with traditional energy sources like nuclear, coal, oil and gas, we now employ wind, landfill gas and solar energy every day to meet our customers’ energy needs. This flexible approach balances customer costs with available resources and environmental concerns. About 7% of Westar's electricity is generated by the Wolf Creek Generating Station. Wolf Creek generates enough electricity to power more than 800,000 Kansas homes. And it generates power, with virtually no air emissions because nothing is burned in the nuclear electricity generating process.
Wolf Creek is a 1,200 megawatt nuclear energy center located in Coffey County, Kansas.
