Understand your usage with enhanced information from the new meter.
Energy usage. Your new Dashboard provides cost, usage and environmental impact information for the previous day in 15-minute increments, as well as in month-to-date data, historical data from previous billing periods and weekly email summary reports.
Outage reporting. The new meters let Westar Energy know when there’s an outage. Before, our computers made assumptions to determine why outages were caused and how many customers were affected. Now we’re able to pinpoint outages – house by house – to restore your power more quickly. It’s still a good idea to call us if your power is out, but we may have a much better idea of when it will be back on when you do.
Energy alerts. Sign up for alerts that notify you by text or email when your bill has reached a predetermined amount set by you.
Summary emails. When you first log in to your online account, you will begin receiving weekly summary emails that show how much you’re spending and help you understand your energy use. This helps to prevent surprises at the end of the month! You can always choose to not receive weekly summary emails by clicking on the “Alerts” tab on your dashboard and following the instructions.
Future compatible. The new meter supports emerging technology that may provide more choices and tools for you to manage your energy use.
