Company Overview

Founded in 1882, KCP&L has grown into a trusted energy provider and resource.

More than 130 years ago, a small group of forward-thinking Kansas Citians believed electricity was more than a novelty. As a result, KCP&L now serves more than 800,000 customers in 47 northwest Missouri and eastern Kansas counties. With a service area of about 18,000 square miles, it takes more than 3,000 miles of transmission lines, 24,000 miles of distribution lines and over 400 substations to deliver power to our customers.

Because electricity is an essential part of our daily lives, the energy industry only continues to evolve to meet the needs of our customers and the environment. Find out more with our overview topics below. 

In 2018, we merged with Westar Energy to bring you more savings, sustainable energy and solutions that meet your needs. Our companies will combine operations, resulting in a stronger regional energy provider.
