Research and Pilot Program

A culture of innovation begins with an investment in our customers and communities.

Evergy supports your energy usage in many ways and figuring out the best way to invest in our customers is important to us because we know it’s important to you. That's why we now have a Research and Pilot Program - a resource for assessing innovative and different ways we can support our customers, aside from our discounts.

Our current pilots include...
