Well I was worried about it but did it anyway.  On July 1st,I signed on to the somewhat controversial KCPL (Kansas City Power and Light ) Energy Optimizer program.  The program offers a FREE programmable thermostat ($300 value),including installation,to KCP&L residential and small commercial customers to help manage energy consumption.  A person may program their thermostat from any Internet location in the world.

The controversial part of the program occurs when a ‘cycling’event takes place.  A cycling event is when participants Energy Star rated thermostat receives a radio signal to turn off the air conditioning compressor for 15 minutes then back on for 15 minutes.  The cycling may repeat continuously for up to four hours.  Cycling may only occur between June and September excluding holidays and weekends.  I have not had a cycling event since July 1. 

According to an article in today’s Kansas City Star,KCPL has the ability to cycle 34,000 of its 800,000 customers in Kansas and Missouri.  To sign up for the program (866) 882-4429 or online SIGN UP HERE and Save Money with Free Thermostat in Kansas City.

A proposed $200 million use of government stimulus money would make a 150 block GREEN IMPACT ZONE in Kansas City more energy efficient by incorporating a smart grid,a green sewer project,neighborhood stabilization –including buying up forclosures and installation of solar panels on schools.
