partner utilities

Efficiency Kansas Partner Utilities (like our Partner Lenders) provide the program's low-cost loans directly to their customers. As providers of electricity and natural gas, utilities are uniquely positioned to facilitate Efficiency Kansas improvements in existing homes and small businesses.

Partner utilities use Efficiency Kansas financing and tie loan repayment to the meter. In all instances, all projects receiving funds through Efficiency Kansas must be repaid in 15 years (that is, 180 monthly bill payments) or less.

  • Utilities receive 100% of the project cost from the state at 0% interest.
  • Utilities may charge administrative fees.
  • Maximum loan term is 15 years.
  • Maximum amount financed is $20,000 for residential and $30,000 for small business projects.

Utilities that are subject to the jurisdiction of the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) may become Partner Utilities upon Commission approval of their meter-based program and associated tariffs. Non-jurisdictional utilities may work directly with the Kansas Energy Office to become partners.
