[ARCHIVED] IMPORTANT UPDATE -- ROLLING BLACK OUTS

148941108_10159156362254106_5327747981921475300_n

***IMPORTANT NOTICE***
Evergy has contacted the City to request we transition our electrical operations to emergency power and to notify us that a series of 30- to 60-minute "rolling blackouts" are planned immediately for customers in its service area. This is an effort to conserve power, as the company's power grid is experiencing extreme strain due to the current frigid temperatures and dramatically high electrical use. Power will be shut-off intermittently to blocks of customers, and you can expect to be without power for up to an hour at a time. Evergy may not be able to provide advance notice, so please be prepared for this occurrence. You can help conserve power by turning down your thermostat a bit and minimizing your use of lights and electrical appliances. If you are impacted by an emergency electricity reduction, you do not need to report your outage.  Rather, check Evergy’s outage map and www.evergy.com/outageinfo

for more information.  All customers should be prepared for the potential for these periodic outages. If you experience an outage that lasts longer than an hour, report your outage at www.evergy.com

or call 888-544-4852 or 800-544-4857, for Kansas Central customers.  
Atmos Energy also has requested that businesses and residential customers do what they can to conserve gas usage at this time, as they too are experiencing a strain on resources.
