Appointments and eligibility for the Nest Thermostat are limited.

Thermostat for Home

Eligible Missouri customers can enroll in Rush Hour Rewards and get a Nest Thermostat at no cost.

KCP&L is offering limited appointments for eligible Missouri customers to get a Nest Thermostat while openings are available. Over time, the Nest Thermostat learns and adapts to temperatures you prefer to keep you comfortable and help save energy when you’re away. Select KCP&L customers can get a Nest Thermostat and have it installed at no additional cost.

In addition to getting the free Nest, you will also be enrolled in our Rush Hour Rewards program. After the first year, you receive a $25 check at the end of each additional year you stay enrolled in the program.

About Rush Hour Rewards

By enrolling in our Rush Hour Rewards program, you can reduce energy usage during peak hours, and receive a Nest Thermostat.

Here’s how it works:

  • KCP&L wants to lower demand during energy rush hours, like those hot summer afternoons when everyone’s cranking up the air conditioning.
  • The Nest Thermostat can help you use less energy by cooling your home down ahead of time and tweaking the temperature up to three degrees during the rush hour. 
  • You’re in control. If you’re home, Nest won’t let it get too hot. But if you start to feel warm, you can change the temperature at any time.
