Our Merger with Westar

We're working together to bring you more savings, sustainable energy and solutions that meet your needs.

We have merged with Westar Energy. 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 KCP&L customer, here’s what stays the same:

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're passing along savings to customers with a KCP&L/Westar Merger Bill Credit on your bill. Find out more here.

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.
