At the end of many press releases announcing economic development organizations that helped attract businesses to locate or expand in the Kansas City area, Kansas City Power & Light usually is listed.

The utility’s active role in helping spur growth in its 47-county territory has earned KCP&L designation as a national Accredited Economic Development Organization. It is one of only two utilities with that accreditation.

KCP&L received accreditation after site visits and interviews with multiple Kansas City area economic development officials. Joe Fangman, John Engelmann, Lisa Franklin, Mark Dawson and Dan Hegeman are part of KCP&L’s development team.
