KCP&L customers and employees can qualify for a $3,000 discount on a new 2018 Nissan Leaf through a partnership with the KCP&L Clean Charge Network and Nissan.
The rebate was extended from earlier this summer and is available through September 30 at Kansas City area Nissan dealers. Additionally, EV buyers are eligible for up to a $7,500 federal tax credit.
According to the Clean Charge Network, plug-in electric vehicles (EV) can cost two-thirds less than gas-powered vehicles to operate, They have zero tailpipe emissions, which accounts overall for 26 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
In Kansas City, KCP&L has installed more than 1,000 EV charging stations, which is the more than any other city in the United States. Over the past few years, EV manufacturers have reduced “range anxiety” by increasing the distance that each EV will go on a charge. The 2018 Leaf is rated for 150 miles on a single charge.
