Kansas Gas and Electric Company (KGE), Westar Energy's wholly owned subsidiary, provides these services in south-central and southeastern Kansas, including the Wichita metropolitan area. Westar Energy has two reportable segments, Electric Utility and Other.

For the nine months ended 9/30/04, revenues fell 1% to $1.12 billion. Net income applicable to Common and from continuing operations fell 32% to $82.4 million. Revenues reflect cooler weather leading to less energy use by retail customers. Net income also reflects higher costs for natural gas and oil and the absence of a $53.8 million gain on the sale of ONEOK, Inc. stock.
