In many areas, Westar Energy power lines are buried underground. Before digging, planting trees, setting fence posts or excavation, visit Kansas One-Call or call 811. Westar Energy underground power line locations will be marked at no charge, please give two-days notice.
Remember, that little tree you plant now will someday grow to be a giant and could interfere with overhead power lines. Make sure to plant the right tree in the right place.
In some areas, transformers and electrical cabinets are mounted at or near ground level. These should be handled only by professional utility service personnel. If you notice evidence of tampering or unsecured transformers or electrical cabinets, notify us immediately.
For your safety, consider utility poles and electric substations “off-limits.” Notify us if you see evidence of tampering or unsecured substations.
