Updated April 2015

Kansas utilities budgeted nearly $15 million in 2013 to promote their programs in the state, but spending was heavily weighted towards load management / demand response offerings. 

What public-purpose-funded energy efficiency programs are available in my state?

Kansas has no public-purpose-funded energy efficiency programs. 

What utility energy efficiency programs are available to me?

The Kansas City Board of Public Utilities offers rebates  to its commercial customers for the installation of efficient electric water heaters, electric resistance heating systems, and electric or dual-fuel heat pumps.

Kansas City Power and Light (KCP&L) offers prescriptive and custom rebates  for its KCP&L-MO and GMO (Greater Missouri Operations) service areas only, and not to Kansan customers. 

What load management/demand response options are available to me?

Kansas City Power & Light (KCPL)’s Demand Response Incentive  program provides a discount on summer energy bills in exchange for reducing electrical usage at certain times during the summer. Contact the Business Center, (816) 221-2323 or businessctr@kcpl.com for more information and to confirm the program is accepting new applicants in your service area.

What distributed energy resource options are available to me?

The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency  (DSIRE) provides information on programs that offer incentives for renewable distributed generation. Kansas currently has no programs of this type available to federal customers.

Are there energy efficiency programs sponsored by the state government?

No state energy efficiency programs are currently available to federal customers. For information on potential future opportunities, contact the Kansas Corporation Commission’s Energy Division .

What additional opportunities are available to me?

Federal customers whose utilities have area-wide supply contracts through GSA (e.g., Atmos Energy Corporation, Black Hills, and KCP&L), may be able to take advantage of 3rd-party financed energy efficiency projects called utility energy services contracts (UESCs). Information is available in GSA’s Energy Division Library . Federal facilities should contact their account executive to determine the level of each utility's participation.
