The Kansas City Home Performance with Energy Star Program (HPWES) is a comprehensive, whole-house approach to improving residential energy efficiency and home comfort. The approach was created by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Energy (DOE). The Kansas City HPWES program is currently sponsored by two local utilities, Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L)
and Missouri Gas Energy (MGE)
. The utilities offer participating homeowners with up to $1200 in bill credits for an energy audit conducted by a HPWES certified contractor and qualifying energy efficient home improvements.
The HPWES energy audit provides specific recommendations on how homeowners can save energy, reduce their utility bills, and make their homes more comfortable. Many homeowners implement more than one recommendation and invest more than the $1200 they will receive back from the utilities. Read our HPwES Terms and Conditions
