RENEW - Renewable Energy Program

A simple and affordable way to increase your renewable commitment beyond the level that is already part of Westar’s energy service to you. Decide the additional portion of your energy that you would like to be served from renewable resources and pay a little extra each month.

  • Stable price of $.0025 per kWh.
  • Sold as a percentage of energy or a fixed amount each month.
  • Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are certified and provided to customers.
  • For large, lump sum orders, you can purchase RECs directly from Westar at an agreed upon market-based price.
Renewables Direct 

Westar is able to provide your renewable energy needs directly from the source. By partnering with Westar’s Renewables Direct program, you not only receive the fixed-cost benefits of renewable energy, you become a partner in a windfarm.

  • Minimum of 500 kW increments up to 2,000 kW, and then in 1,000 kW with the length of the commitment dependent on each project.
  • Guaranteed fixed rate for entire term.
  • Program participants are active partners in the wind farm supplying the renewable energy.
  • Wind energy charged monthly at fixed rate, replacing the standard fuel charge.
  • Remaining kWhs charged at standard quarterly fuel charge.
  • Large power users (over 5 MW) also have the option of selling wind production into the market.
Solar Power

You do not need ideal roof space or large tracts of property to purchase solar energy. By partnering with Westar on Community Solar, we handle all of the siting, installation, and maintenance logistics. You simply pay a fixed monthly fee or a fixed rate for production from a portion of the solar garden that is dedicated to you. As an added benefit, you, or your business, can move anywhere within Westar’s service territory and still take the solar energy with you.

  • Available to all customers being served by Westar.
  • Sold in 1 kW increments with a five to twenty-year commitment required.
  • Guaranteed fixed rate for entire term.
  • Solar energy charged monthly at fixed kW or kWh rate.
  • Energy use is reduced by the amount of energy produced on your subscribed portion of Community Solar .
