Save Money on Your Kansas Power Bills!

Save Money on Your Kansas Power Bills!

Stop spending so much on your Kansas power bill! The electric bill can be a budget-buster when you’re surviving on a low income. Fortunately, your power company can usually help. There are several unknown or little-advertised programs that power companies may offer that can help lower the cost of your power bill.


Most power companies offer a budget billing plan, which averages the annual cost of electricity in a home and bills the customer in 12 even installments. This can help low-income customers maintain a budget and avert payment problems, especially during the more expensive winter months.

I did not see my utility providers on the list. I have Atmos Energy for Gas service and I have Evergy as my electric provider. I live in Johnson County Kansas.

I am interested in resources that can help me with financial assistance towards my Utility Vendors if I could not pay a bill.
