KCP&L’s weatherization assistance program can help income-eligible families reduce energy consumption up to 35% by installing insulation, window caulk and other weatherization measures.

According to a news release from KCP&L, weatherizing your home reduces the amount of energy you use—up to 35%. But it can be tough finding the time and money to make those changes to your home. KCP&L’s Income-Eligible Weatherization can help income-eligible families lower their electricity bills.

Find an agency in your area. They’ll determine if you qualify, help you apply, and guide you through the entire process.
A professional crew will visit your home and determine your needs. The agency will review the recommendations, determine the work to be done and hire contractors. Trained contractors will complete the weatherization efforts. The average value of work completed through the program is roughly $2,500.

Your agency will inspect the completed work.

To be eligible, you must have received KCP&L service for a minimum of one year immediately preceding the date of the application. You must have made attempts to maintain a payment history, no matter how small.  You must own your residence or, if you rent, get written permission from your landlord. The landlord must also agree to pay for no less than 50% of the total weatherization cost and not raise rent for at least two years from the completion date. Your annual energy usage must be greater than or equal to 3,000 kWh.
