TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW) – Staring on 15 February at 12:15 p.m. Evergy will begin turning off power to customer blocks for approximately 30-60 minutes and then restoring it

Due to the widespread extreme temperature drops, the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) has asked member utilities, including Evergy, to perform controlled, temporary emergency power reductions that will help prevent major uncontrolled and prolonged power outages across the region

If you are involved in an emergency shutdown, you do not need to report your outage; instead, check the Evergy outage map and wwwEvergycom / outageinfo for more information

All customers should be prepared for these regular outages. If you experience an outage that lasts longer than an hour, report your outage at wwwEvergycom or by calling 888-544-4852 or 800-544-4857
