Successes

 

One of the most important advantages KC offers is its inherent protection against energy black-outs. Your risks of experiencing an energy black-out are influenced greatly by the distance you are from your primary energy source and your back-up energy source. KC provides:

  • Consistently ranked among the best for constant, uninterrupted service;
  • Exceptional low-cost energy prices; and
  • Local generation via coal, nuclear, and wind generation plants
