Renewable energy’s past, present and future

More than 15 years ago, Westar began exploring renewable energy sources with the first large-scale wind turbines in Kansas and building alternatives to traditional fuels. Today, we are making significant progress into reliable, affordable and clean energy for Kansas.

Westar’s renewable energy history

In only 3 years, we've more than tripled the energy we produce from renewable sources. In 2014, we produced 10% of the energy used by our homes and businesses from renewable sources. By 2017, nearly 1/3 of that energy will come from renewables.
