Utilities aim to increase value of residential energy efficiency.

Kansas City, Mo. (Oct. 4, 2017) – KCP&L and Spire (formerly Missouri Gas Energy, or MGE) have created a partnership so eligible residential customers, utilizing both utility services, may receive energy savings and bill reductions from both energy sources.

These mutual customers may also receive additional rebates for approved insulation and home air sealing. The increased rebate hopes to encourage more homeowners to add insulation to their homes, as well as consider air sealing to discourage heating and cooling air loss.

Eligible customers can also participate in the Energy Savings Kit and receive a free, high-level home energy assessment, where a KCP&L home energy efficiency professional will walk homeowners through their home and show specific areas that can easily be improved to increase efficiency; as well as install several items that can lower energy costs, such as LED light bulbs, low flow faucet aerators and shower heads and a smart power strip.

Programs included under this partnership include; the Energy Savings Kit, the Insulation and Air Sealing Rebate and the Income Eligible Multifamily program.

Brian File, Sr. Manager of Products and Services at KCP&L, commented that “We have evaluated our Company’s combined interest and devised a process to increase our customer’s awareness of their homes efficiency - and are very excited to begin offering more impactful and robust customer programs through this enhanced utility partnership!”

Residential customers who have participated in the KCP&L Insulation and Air Sealing Rebate program, and are also customers of the gas utility, will be provided a retroactive rebate – dating back to October 21, 2016. More information about specific rebates is available through the KCP&L website.
