Westar Offers Alternative Energy Option

KSAL StaffJanuary 19, 2016

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Westar Energy is looking for customers interested in using some solar energy without having to install equipment.

The utility announced Monday it will build a solar array if enough customers agree by the end of March to buy at least 1 megawatt of power. That’s enough electricity to power 164 homes.

Westar spokeswoman Gina Penzig says anywhere in Westar’s territory could participate in the program.

A household would pay about $10 per month to receive about 15 percent of its electricity through the solar community project. The incentive is that the rates would be locked in for as long as the customer is enrolled, regardless of how regular rates fluctuate.

Customers can enroll by visiting Westar’s website, WestarEnergy.com/communitysolar.
