In February 2021, Winter Storm Uri created energy shortages across much of the central United States. As a result, Evergy Kansas Central experienced extraordinary costs related to generating, purchasing, and delivering power to its customers during the storm. The Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) has approved an agreement allowing Evergy to recover those costs. For Evergy Kansas Central customers, a monthly charge will be added to bills over a two-year period from April 2023 to March 2025. The average monthly cost per residential customer is estimated to be $2.82, which will be reflected in the Fuel Used in Power Generation line item on bills.
