       Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results
of Operations
       Executive Summary
       Non-GAAP Measures, page 38

   1.                                                   We note that you
identify several non-GAAP measures in your Executive Summary
                                                        though do not mention
Utility Gross Margin, which you also identify as a non-GAAP
                                                        measure for Evergy
Inc., Evergy Kansas Central, Inc., and Evergy Metro, Inc. in your
                                                        tabulations of
operating results on pages 45, 55,and 58. We see that you define the
                                                        measure on page 44 as
operating revenues less fuel and purchased power costs and
                                                        amounts billed by the
SPP for network transmission costs.

                                                        We also see that you
utilize these non-GAAP measures within MD&A in your analyses of
                                                        operating results.
Based on your disclosures, these measures appear to exclude amounts
                                                        that would be
attributable to a GAAP measure of cost of revenue, as would be reflected in

         a GAAP measure of gross margin. We believe that you should identify
gross margin as
         the most comparable GAAP measure in providing the disclosures required
by Item
         10(e)(1)(i)(A) and Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K.

         Please revise your Executive Summary to include disclosures that
encompass these non-
         GAAP measures along with the most directly comparable GAAP-based
measures. Please
         submit the revisions that you propose to address these prominence and
         requirements, utilizing gross margin as the most comparable GAAP
        We remind you that the company and its management are responsible for
the accuracy
and adequacy of their disclosures, notwithstanding any review, comments, action
or absence of
action by the staff.
