Why We're Merging

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

  • Increased Savings

    We know how hard it is to make ends meet today. As a combined company, we will be able to provide energy and service more efficiently. That means more savings for you and smaller, less frequent rate-change requests. Additionally, savings generated by this merger will be shared with you through bill credits. Find out more here.
  • Sustainable Energy

    We are committed to delivering clean, safe, reliable sources of energy today — and well into the future. We’re embracing alternative energy sources to generate more power with less impact on our environment. And nearly half the power we provide to homes and businesses will now be emissions-free.
  • Innovative Solutions

    We are committed to providing you with energy solutions that meet your needs and lifestyle. From our network of electric vehicle charging stations to our award-winning energy-efficiency programs, we are focused on providing innovative solutions that work for you.
