Building Energy Aggregation Tool

Manage compliance with the Kansas City, Mo., Energy Empowerment Ordinance.

The City of Kansas City, Mo., (KCMO) enacted the Energy Empowerment Ordinance (Sections 18-500 through 18-508) to establish an energy benchmarking and reporting requirement for certain buildings. (Additional information is available here.) To assist our customers in complying with this KCMO ordinance, KCP&L has developed the Building Energy Aggregation Tool (BEAT).

BEAT allows customers to aggregate multiple meters at a building into a whole-building, electrical energy-usage number. This makes it easier for building owners to report to KCMO. This aggregated electrical usage data is to be used solely for benchmarking purposes and will not provide any identifiable individual meter data.
