Our commitment to you, our communities and the planet

We know affordability is important to you—it’s important to us too. 

Our linemen, engineers, support staff and customer service representatives live right here in Kansas and Missouri. We're not just Evergy employees. We're Evergy customers, too.

We're proud of our community and value our Midwest cost-of-living just like you do. That's why we're committed to keeping our energy rates as low as possible. We do that by reducing our costs, investing in our local community and giving you tools and options to control your energy use.

Generating power that's cleaner, more affordable and more reliable

than ever before—that’s our vision for a sustainable energy future.


Our sustainability plan

Looking forward and innovating now

  • We are committed to meeting the evolving energy needs of our customers and communities.
  • Providing sustainable energy has always been important to us. And because it’s even more important to you now, it’s an even bigger part of our plans.
  • Evergy is steadily moving towards 70% carbon reduction by 2030, and our goal of reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2045. The company expects a combination of supportive energy policies and evolving technology to enable the net-zero goal.

  • We’re investing in more tools and options to keep your energy costs down and give you more control.

Our Progress

Latest Efforts


We're celebrating over 100 million megawatt-hours of wind generation


Did you know one wind turbine can produce up to 3,000 kilowatts per hour? That can power Kauffman Stadium for just over nine minutes, KCI airport for just over four minutes and several customer's homes for a couple months. 

Utilizing and generating wind creates a much cleaner environment and offers our communities a more sustainable and affordable option. With over 274 wind turbines in our energy mix, we're well on our way to achieving our goal of carbon neutral by 2045.

History of Evergy Sustainability

Although cleaner energy is a major part of our future, it's also a part of our past. For decades, we've strived to pave the way for cleaner energy through carbon-free and renewable efforts.
