Latest Outage News

STAY UP-TO-DATE IN OUTAGE SITUATIONS

Extreme frigid temperatures are affecting our region’s power supply, so the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) asked Evergy to implement controlled, temporary emergency electricity reductions to help avoid larger uncontrolled and extended power outages throughout the region.

 

As a way to help limit emergency electricity reductions, Southwest Power Pool (SPP) may require Evergy turn off energy to controlled portions of customers for approximately 30-60 minutes. Power will be restored to the area after that time period has ended. These emergency outages will then move to a different portion of service area. We'll continue this process periodically until it's no longer required by SPP.

With these extreme cold temperatures, equipment may not operate as intended. As a result, outages could last longer than 30 - 60 minutes. If you are impacted by an emergency electricity reduction, you do not need to report your outage. Rather, check back here. All customers should be prepared for the potential for these periodic outages. If you experience an outage that lasts longer than an hour, call 888-544-4852 or 800-544-4857 for Kansas Central customers.

You can view current outages in your area in the Outage Map
