KCP&L offers hot weather tips

The hot temperatures the region is experiencing this week can cause serious problems for people trying pay their electric bills. Community Affairs Manager with Kansas City Power and Light Dan Hegeman says KCP&L offers bill payment options to help customers meet higher costs during the summer.

Hegeman adds there are several ways for KCP&L customers to cut down on their electric bill and stay safe during the summer.

In addition, Hegeman says the Hot Weather Rule went into effect on June 1 and runs through September 30. Under the rule, residential disconnects are prohibited when the temperature is forecast to be above 95 degrees or the heat index above 105 degrees between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. in the next 24-hour-period. Hegeman adds customers will be charged for energy used during any suspended disconnection periods.
