Kansas City Power & Light Company Key Developments

Kansas City Power & Light Company Announces Significant Investment in Environmental Sustainability

Kansas City Power & Light Company announced a significant investment in environmental sustainability through new and enhanced energy-efficiency programs and wind energy projects. The utility has requested to expand its energy-efficiency programs to all of its Missouri customers under the Missouri Energy Efficiency Investment Act. The company plans to purchase 400 MW of power from two new wind facilities in the Kansas City region, which will increase the company's total wind energy portfolio to 939 MW. The wind projects will provide enough energy to power up to approximately 124,000 homes. With these additions, the company will have the large amounts of renewable generation and energy-efficiency investment of any investor-owned utility in the states of Missouri and Kansas. These wind projects give the company the opportunity to take full advantage of a federal wind tax credit that expired at the end of 2013. Also, these facilities will be economically beneficial to company's customers over the lifetime of the 20-year agreements. While wind turbines cannot yet replace base-load generation like company's larger power plants, these wind farms will be a cheaper option to supplement base-load generation than purchasing power from other locations. Using these wind turbines in place of other forms of electricity generation not only reduces fuel and other costs, but is also a more environmentally-friendly option for the region. In addition to adding more renewable energy for all customers, the company filed with the Missouri Public Service Commission to expand its energy-efficiency programs to all of its Missouri customers. With the approval of this expansion, it will have the large energy efficiency portfolio, on a per customer basis, of any investor-owned utility in Missouri and Kansas. As a result, customers will have greater control over their energy use and costs with more than a dozen energy-efficiency programs. If approved, this expansion will include several popular residential and commercial energy-efficiency programs currently available to some of company's Missouri customers that are designed to improve lighting, provide rebates for recycling older, inefficient appliances and for replacing inefficient heating and cooling systems, among other programs.
