Light Source

We help emerging suppliers grow and thrive through our Light Source Program.

For more than 25 years, KCP&L’s Supplier Diversity initiative has opened doors to minority - and women-owned, and small businesses to help them succeed in their endeavors. Light Source is another opportunity for us to guide these suppliers to a bright future through a program that seeks to nurture emerging minority- and women-owned businesses in the community.

Light Source supplier participants are paired with a senior KCP&L leader and procurement advocate who provide business advice and counsel, connect them with training options, and help expand their network of contacts and opportunities. 

It’s a relationship that’s beneficial on both sides. The suppliers enhance their capabilities and skills, increase visibility in the community and gain a better understanding of bid and award procedures. And we have the opportunity to strengthen relationships with diverse suppliers, enhance our supplier resource base, and foster economic development and community improvement.
