How has Evergy benefited customers?

Evergy committed to multiple benefits as a new company. And we continue to keep our promises: 

  • Customers received bill credits beginning in December of 2018 that will continue to offer savings 
  • Rate case reviews completed in 2018 reduced customer prices
  • Savings and efficiencies are on track with expected levels
  • Evergy has made an additional $3.5 million in investments to support key community development projects in Topeka, Wichita and Pittsburg
  • No involuntary layoffs as a result of the merger
  • The company promised to complete a rate study, which was filed with the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) Jan. 14, 2019

We're happy to share that we've entered a period of rate stability and are ahead of the curve on environmental requirements, aligning our rates with the national average. We've also committed to not change base rates until December of 2023 in Kansas, along with fewer and smaller rate increases across all service areas moving forward.
