Web Site:

Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L) provides financial incentives for commercial and industrial customers to increase the energy efficiency of eligible facilities. Rebates are available for custom energy-saving measures in new or existing buildings. All custom rebates are individually determined and analyzed to ensure that they pass the Societal Benefit/Cost Test.

Custom rebates are limited during the first 6 months to a set of maximum amounts provided on KCP&L's web site, which vary according to the size of the business and whether the building is new or existing. Projects which have started or have been completed before pre-approval are not eligible for the rebate. Customers may apply for more than one measure per facility.

Prescriptive rebates are also offered for a pre-qualified list of energy-efficiency measures including lighting, air conditioning, and motors. These prescriptive rebates are only available to small business customers who are on KCP&L's Small General Service rate (SGS). For more information and applications for various rebates, visit the program's web site.
