Participants in the KCP&L Demand Response Incentive program can receive incentives by strategically reducing energy use on peak days.
Companies that can reduce their load by a minimum of 25 kilowatts can volunteer for our load-management program and earn a significant discount on summer energy bills. Controlling energy usage on peak summer days reduces the overall burden on the grid. This benefits all our customers in several ways:
- Delaying the necessity of building more power generation plants
- Creating savings that reduce future rate increases
- Supporting the local economy by paying companies that participate instead of purchasing power from an out-of-state producer
- Reducing environmental impact, because the greenest kilowatt is the kilowatt never produced
Currently, the Kansas Demand Response Incentive programs are full and no longer accepting new enrollments. However, the GMO and KCP&L Legacy are accepting new enrollments. For more information or to inquire about the waiting list for next summer, contact your Energy Consultant or the Business Center at 816-221-2323.
