Is your home wasting energy? Navigating how to save energy and where to put your dollars for the biggest impact can be overwhelming.
With Evergy’s Pay As You Save program (PAYS), homeowners are getting access to energy-efficiency upgrades that save money and make homes more comfortable, while helping Kansas City reach its overall carbon reduction goals.
The PAYS program is available for Missouri homeowners and renters, and includes a free home energy assessment, free energy-saving product installations, and help with upfront payment for new energy-efficient equipment that can reduce energy bills.
The unique “Pay As You Save” payment option expands energy savings to more homeowners and renters, including those who may not be able to afford the upfront costs of bigger upgrades.
Here’s how the program works:
Request an Energy Assessment: Missouri homeowners can request a complimentary home-energy assessment. The no-obligation assessment acts as a personalized roadmap to energy improvements for your home.
Receive Free Upgrades: All PAYS participants get access to free upgrades including low-flow showerheads, faucet aerators, water heater insulation wraps, and smart power strips.
Make Big Upgrades with Upfront Cost Assistance: Evergy helps with the upfront cost for upgrades like HVAC systems, attic insulation, air sealing, and duct sealing. Homeowners can select what work will be completed from the home assessment and choose a contractor from an authorized contractor list.
Save on Monthly Bills: A fixed monthly amount is added to your electricity bill until the upgrades are paid off. The amount is calculated to be less than your total monthly savings, so your bill should be lower than previous electric bills.
Evergy considers this an investment in home energy efficiency, not a loan. The program has no credit requirements. If you move, the amount due is tied to the home meter and continues with the energy bill of the house.
