As the largest electric energy provider in Kansas, Westar Energy is dedicated to operating the best electric utility in the Midwest and providing quality service at below average prices.
As the largest electric energy provider in Kansas, serving more than half a million residents, Westar Energy is dedicated to operating the best electric utility in the Midwest and providing quality service at below average prices.
Our goal is to become a preferred energy provider, both inside and outside our service territory. To help us achieve this goal, teams of employees have developed Mission, Vision and Values Statements.
Headquartered in Topeka, Westar Energy employs about 2,400 people and serves more than 679,000 customers in much of east and east-central Kansas. Our energy centers generate more than 6,800 megawatts of electricity (including 300MW from Wind), and we operate and coordinate 35,000 miles of transmission and distribution lines.
Westar Energy service trucks and customer service centers use advanced technology to better serve our customers. Our 1-800-LIGHT-KS line can accept 30,000 calls per hour. Computer terminals in our service trucks generate work assignments for our crews. During storms, these tools help us restore power quickly.
It is also important to Westar Energy to give something back to the people we serve. Through the Westar Energy Green Team, the Westar Energy Foundation and Westar Energy Community Partners, we help preserve the state’s environment, support non-profit agencies and encourage volunteerism among our employees and retirees.
