Safe, reliable electricity is a foundation of our economy, which is why we're committed to doing what it takes to meet Kansas' continually changing energy needs.
As the largest electric provider in Kansas, our goal is to become a preferred energy provider, inside and outside our service territory.
Headquartered in Topeka, Westar Energy employs about 2,400 people and serves nearly 700,000 customers in much of east and east-central Kansas (see our service territory map). Our energy centers generate more than 7,000 megawatts of electricity, and we operate and coordinate 35,000 miles of transmission and distribution lines.
Westar Energy service trucks and customer service centers use advanced technology to better serve our customers. Our 1-800-LIGHT-KS outage line can accept 30,000 calls per hour. Computer terminals in our service trucks generate work assignments for our crews. During storms, these tools help us restore power quickly.
It is also important to us to give something back to the people we serve. Through the Westar Energy Green Team, Westar Energy Foundation and Westar Energy Community Partners, we help preserve the state’s environment, support non-profit agencies and encourage volunteerism among our employees and retirees.
