Private Solar, Wind and Net Metering

Customers who produce their own energy from renewable sources can earn a credit on bills.

Whether you turn to wind, solar or some other method of generating your own energy, connecting to the electrical grid doesn’t have to be complicated. We'll help you make it work.
Our Net Metering service provides the electrical energy produced by your renewable generating resource to offset the energy we provide during the billing period. For example, if the excess electricity we supply you exceeds the electricity generated by your renewable generating system during a billing period, you will be billed for that net electricity. If the excess electricity generated by your renewable generating system exceeds the electricity we supply you during a billing period, you will be credited for the excess kilowatt-hours with a credit applied during that billing period.
Under a parallel generation tariff a customer will pay for 100% of the power delivered to them from the utility. For any customer generation that is exported back to the grid a bill credit will be given at a rate of avoided cost of generation.

How it works

It starts with a net-metering billing arrangement...

  • The energy you export is used to offset an equal amount of power supplied by Evergy in the billing period. Energy produced in excess of power supplied by Evergy (or net kWh) is credited to your bill at our avoided cost.
  • The avoided cost you receive for your energy exported greater than the amount of power supplied by Evergy is less than retail because it reflects only energy- not generation, transmission, distribution and administrative costs included in retail rates.
