KCP&L’s Income-Eligible Weatherization program helps income-eligible families lower their electricity bills.

What do you get? Free home upgrades. Financial assistance in weatherizing your home. Expert guidance. Reduced energy usage. And improved health and safety of your home.

How the Program Works

  • Contact 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 $3,500.
  • Your agency will inspect the completed work.

Who is eligible for weatherization services

  • 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.
  • Your household income must not exceed the current income guidelines (listed below).
  • You must own your residence or, if you rent, get written permission from your landlord. (The landlord must also agree to 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.

If you don't qualify, you can still utilize weatherization and save energy and money with our insulation and air sealing rebate.
