Kansas City Power and Light (KCP&L) offers a free Honeywell programmable thermostat, worth $300, and free installation to qualifying customers to manage energy usage. Only residential and small commercial customers that have a central air-conditioning system or compatible heat pump system are eligible to receive this incentive. The system must also be pre-qualified by a KCP&L authorized technician. In exchange for the free thermostat, customers agree to participate in a load management program where KCP&L can send a paging signal to the thermostat to turn the air conditioning compressor on in 15-minute intervals for a maximum of four hours during peak demand periods.
