Business Incentive Programs

Utility Incentive Programs

Aug 23, 2021

Many of our state utility partners can offer discounted rates or other costing-saving tools to assist companies looking to establish or grow their operations in Kansas.

In addition, SB339 recently passed allowing public investor-owned utilities access to a tool designed to attract new, very large electric utility economic development opportunities to the State of Kansas. With final approval by the Kansas Corporation Commission, this incentive provides a competitive rate to new customers with an electric demand of 50 MW or larger. 

Eligible customers include non-retail industries such as data centers, aviation and other large-scale industrial development. Customers benefit from the special rate for 10 years. A new load of at least 50 MW must be located at a single location. Renewable resources can be incorporated into the rate making, providing for additional savings and allowing customers to meet their corporate goals.

In addition, companies committed to meeting corporate sustainability goals from renewable sources have several options to reach those targets, including a Renewables Direct program offered by the state’s largest utility that allows commercial and industrial customers to offset a percentage of their energy usage through a renewable resource. This program is designed to provide large customers a path toward their sustainability goals with abundant, affordable renewable energy. A number of utilities across the state also have wind and solar energy as part of their electricity portfolio, and other arrangements such as energy efficiency incentives may be offered by some service providers.

For more information please reach out to your Commerce project manager, and they will connect you with the appropriate utility partner.
