Evergy crosses 75 million MWh of wind energy

Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 29, 2020 — Evergy wind farms marked 75 million megawatt hours of production this week. To display the magnitude of this milestone, that’s enough electricity to power peak usage (game time) at Arrowhead Stadium for more than 850 straight years.

Evergy has been expanding wind energy production in the Midwest for more than a decade. With 4,600 megawatts of owned and contracted wind generation, our wind portfolio helps fuel Kansas’ No. 2 state ranking for wind generation as a percentage of total generation.

Evergy meets a third of our residential and business customers’ electricity needs with renewable sources. Wind and solar subscriptions are available for residential and small business customers who want more of their energy from renewables. Renewables Direct is available for commercial and industrial customers who want access to energy from area wind farms to help meet sustainability goals.
