Sustainability

Our commitment to you, our communities and the planet

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

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

 

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.

We developed an ambitious—and attainable—plan to be carbon neutral by 2045. This roadmap allows us to responsibly transition and manage a diverse energy supply as renewable and storage technologies continue to advance.

Our Plan

 

Right on track

Today, we’re embracing new energy sources to generate more power with less impact to our environment. We’re adopting new technologies to modernize our grid and support more renewables. We’re investing in more tools and options to keep your energy costs down and give you more control.

Because you deserve power that’s clean, affordable and reliable now—and for years to come.

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.
