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.

How it works

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

  • This allows customers who produce their own energy from renewable sources to earn a credit on electric bills for the extra energy that flows back into our distribution system.
  • Using a special meter, we measure the electricity you generate from solar panels or a wind turbine. That way, we can determine both the electricity you use from the grid (find out more in our video) and the electricity you produce. 
  • 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. This amount is less than retail because it reflects only energy — not the generation, transmission, distribution and administrative costs included in retail rates.
