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

As a combined company, we will provide you more benefits than we could had KCP&L and Westar remained separate companies:

  1. Increased savings
  2. Sustainable energy
  3. 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.
