Evergy - Business Energy Savings Rebate Program

March 24, 2023


Evergy, formerly Kansas City Power & Light, offers four types of rebate incentives – Standard, custom, retro-commissioning and new construction. All rebates are available to Missouri business customers within Evergy's service area.

Within the standard incentives, incentive amounts less than $10,000 do not require pre-approval. For projects exceeding $10,000, pre-approval is required. Standard incentives are available for lighting and controls, motors and drives, refrigeration, food service equipment, HVAC systems and controls, and air compressors.

Custom rebates are also available upon request. All Custom rebates require pre-approval and are determined on a $/kWh saved metric.
