Evergy - Residential Programmable Thermostat Program

July 21, 2023


Evergy, formerly Kansas City Power & Light, offers a programmable thermostat program available to homeowners or renters. This program offers three forms of enrollment varying with smart thermostat type and ownership. Customers who currently own a smart thermostat will receive a $50 enrollment incentive. If a smart thermostat was not previously owned, customers receive a free or heavily discounted smart thermostat for professional or self-installation. All options receive an annual incentive of $25.

In exchange for the incentive and a discounted smart thermostat, Evergy is entitled to Energy Savings Events within their service area. Events occur on weekdays between June 1 and September 30 from 12pm-9pm, never more than once a day or three times a week. During these events, Evergy contacts customers and requests the ability to raise the customer's home temperature for 15 minute intervals.
