Our Merger with KCP&L
We're working together to bring you more savings, sustainable energy and solutions that meet your needs.
We have merged with Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L). Now our companies will combine operations, resulting in a stronger regional energy provider.
Our holding company name has changed to Evergy, Inc. Sometime in 2019, we will transition both companies to the single company name of Evergy.
As a Westar customer, here’s what stays the same:
- You will pay your bill the same way you do today, using your same account information.
- If you pay online, your log-in information will be the same. And you will still go to www.westarenergy.com.
As a combined company, we will provide you more benefits than we could had KCP&L and Westar remained separate companies:
- Increased savings
- Sustainable energy
- Innovative solutions
We will continue to provide updates about the exciting things this merger will mean for you as our customer, and for us as a company. Together, we will continue to provide sustainable, reliable, lower-cost energy—now and in the future.
Why We're Merging
As a combined company, we will provide you more benefits than we could if Westar and KCP&L remained separate companies.
