Operating from headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, KCP&L has evolved into a full-service energy provider and resource. The company was founded in 1882 and has become one of the Midwest's most affordable energy suppliers because of our leadership in fuel procurement, plant technology and efficient power production and distribution.
KCP&L services more than 800,000 customers in 47 northwestern Missouri and eastern Kansas counties - a service territory of approximately 18,000 square miles. Delivering that power requires 3,000 miles of transmission lines, over 24,000 miles of distribution lines and 320 substations.
The Company operates 15 generating facilities providing power to our customers and selling into the wholesale market. We have over 6,100 megawatts of efficient generation assets in operation or under construction. Approximately 76 percent of our fuel costs are from lower cost coal. In fall of 2006, the Spearville Wind Generation Facility was brought online to provide 100.5 megawatts of renewable energy. KCP&L revenues and core earnings per GXP share can be found on our parent company investor pages.
