Research and Pilot Program

A culture of innovation begins with an investment in our customers and communities.

Evergy supports your energy usage in many ways and figuring out the best way to invest in our customers is important to us because we know it’s important to you. That is why we now have a Research and Pilot Program - a resource for assessing innovative and different ways we can support our customers, aside from our discount and discounts.

Our current pilots include...

HVAC Quality Install

Our residential HVAC program team will be testing a new bluetooth-enabled application to verify quality installation of new heating and cooling system equipment. Results will be evaluated (and a report issued) providing the pilot findings to determine if this would make a valuable addition to the current Heating, Cooling and Home Comfort Program. 

Note: This program is currently unavailable for customer enrollment while it is under a limited pilot trial.
