February 22, 2012 The Kansas City Star released information regarding KCP&L’s decision to cut the energy-efficiency rebate program. Over 270,000 customers in the Kansas City area will lose the benefit of the company’s energy conservation program.
What does this mean for you as a business in the KCP&L covered area?
It means that in approximately 8 weeks you will no longer have access to the KCP&L rebate program started to benefit local businesses making energy-efficient improvements (Note: The rebate program is still in effect – an end date has not been established). It also means that if approved, businesses as well as residential consumers will see rate increases become effective in the coming months.
What can you do to capitalize on the existing rebate program?
As mentioned, the rebate program is still in existence, but won’t be much longer. If your business wants to take advantage of the rebate program you will need to work quickly over the coming weeks. Worldwide Energy is certified in the KCP&L Energy Efficiency Rebate Program as well as accredited through the Better Business Bureau as a reputable source for improving your energy savings.

(Another note on energy efficiency – over the course of the next few years (2012-2014 to be exact), older, high-emitting lighting technology will no longer be available. This means that if your organization is currently using T12 lamps and magnetic ballasts, replacements will no longer be available and you will be forced to upgrade to energy efficient lighting. In these scenarios, it is not a matter of if you will upgrade to energy-efficient lighting, it is a matter of when.)
