Nest Thermostat

Missouri customers can enroll in Rush Hour Rewards and get a Nest thermostat at no cost.

Eligible Missouri customers have an opportunity to get a free Nest thermostat with enrollment in Rush Hour Rewards. Over time, the Nest learns and adapts to your preferred temperatures to help keep you comfortable and save you energy and money while you're away. 

  • The do-it-yourself (DIY) option will return in June, meaning you can sign up for Rush Hour Rewards, receive a free Nest and earn an extra $50 for installing it yourself.
  • Our direct installation option is available now for those who'd like to have a professional installer to come to their home to install their Nest at no cost. If you're interested, call 866-882-4429 to see what available slots are left.
  • If you've already purchased and installed a Nest and would like to join Rush Hour Rewards, enroll online and receive $100. Make sure you have the Nest app downloaded and connected to your thermostat.

About Rush Hour Rewards

By enrolling in our Rush Hour Rewards program, you can reduce energy usage during peak hours.

Here’s how it works:

  • KCP&L wants to lower demand during energy rush hours, like those hot summer afternoons when everyone’s cranking up the air conditioning.
  • The Nest thermostat can help you use less energy by cooling your home down ahead of time and tweaking the temperature up to three degrees during the rush hour. 
  • You’re in control. If you’re home, Nest won’t let it get too hot. But if you start to feel warm, you can change the temperature at any time.
  • There will be no more than 15 rush hour events each summer, and they last no longer than four hours. Rush hours can only occur on weekdays between June 1 and Sept. 30.
  • There will never be more than one rush hour event in a day or more than three events in a week.
