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.

WICHITA, Kan., June 26, 2014 – Over the past couple weeks, a group of Wichita USD 259 counselors and teachers has been touring Westar Energy facilities and learning about the jobs and work practices that are associated with the utility industry.
“This externship gives counselors and teachers a better understanding of how different curricula relate to the jobs being performed on a daily basis. They are gaining firsthand knowledge of potential jobs students can pursue during and after high school,” said Scott Hildebrandt, director of division operations.
The final job shadowing opportunity for this group takes place starting at 7:30 a.m., Friday at 1900 E. Central. The participants will shadow a Wichita line crew until noon. Media are invited to attend this tour for pictures. Please call the media line to coordinate a time and location. Jimmy Martinez, regional director of operations, will be available for interviews in the afternoon.
