Frequently Asked Questions

Below are Frequently Asked Questions regarding KCP&L’s Heating and Cooling Rebate, Insulation and Air Sealing Rebate and being a KCPL-Authorized Trade Ally. Please contact us if you have a question that is not answered here.

Each authorized trade ally is assigned a dedicated outreach manager who can provide assistance with any issues. If you do not know who your outreach manager is, email us or call 816-772-1010 and a representative will provide you with your outreach manager’s contact information.

Once you complete the installation and submit the necessary documents to KCP&L, the rebate payment will be sent to your customer (or to you, if a Heating and Cooling Rebate Reassignment Form has been signed) within 6 to 8 weeks.

Yes. Submitting your customers’ rebate applications is now easier than ever with our Power Rebate App. Available for download on iOS and Android devices, this is the first mobile rebate app specifically designed for the energy efficiency industry. The app streamlines the rebate process by solving many of the challenges that can hamper energy efficiency programs, including the administrative burden for trade allies, incomplete and flawed rebate applications and potential delays in issuing rebates to customers. Contact Manny Cano for more information. 

KCP&L issues the customer’s rebate check. Once you submit the rebate application and all required supporting documentation, the information will be verified and forwarded to the utility for payment.

Rebate amounts vary depending on the customers existing equipment and the equipment installed, click here for a detailed rebates chart. 

KCP&L offers an 8-month electric space heating rate for the winter that is ideally suited for energy-efficient heat pumps. Rates for energy reflect the reduced costs associated with supporting heating usage during the winter season. To qualify for the electric space heating rate, the electric heating equipment (such as a dual-fuel heat pump) must be permanently installed, used as the primary source of heating and used throughout the home. Please keep this in mind as you are talking with your customers about their cooling system options. If they already have a heat pump and they replace it with an A/C system, they no longer qualify to be on this reduced rate for electric space heating.

(Although KCP&L does not currently offer energy efficiency rebates in Kansas, we do continue to have a reduced rate.)

No. We are in the process of requesting approval from Kansas Corporation Commission to offer similar energy-savings opportunities. KCP&L is the first utility in the state to request energy efficiency opportunities through the Kansas Energy Efficiency Investment Act (KEEIA), and the goal is to bring these programs to fruition by early 2017. In the meantime, Energy Analyzer can help customers better understand their energy use and find customized tips to save. 

You will need to provide a completed Trade Ally Participation Agreement and copies of your certificate of insurance and business license.

You will be required to participate in our New Trade Ally Orientation Training with your outreach manager.
