Kansas City Power and Light Missouri Customers sill enjoy big savings to be on a “Heat pump rate” Mygreenkc just saw the new heat pump or space heat tariff . We think its good, also pretty big news, compared to what happened in Kansas. Significant price breaks remain in Missouri for now at least . This rate is for Legacy KCP&L Customers GMO customers pay a little bit different rate.

It is cheaper to have an efficient heat pump vs a 95% furnace . There is normally a gas backup for temps below freezing . We also must point out that is greener to have a …Heat pump even tho electricity is only about 60% efficient delivered to your home. This is because a heat pump is normally 200-300% efficient.
