Participating utility providers may not disconnect service when temperatures are forecast above 95 degrees or heat index is over 105.
The rule runs June 1 through Sept. 30. Customers will still be charged for energy used during the suspended disconnection period.
KCP&L is also offering some tips for its customers to keep cool and bring cooling costs down.
-Find a cool, public place like a library to shelter should air conditioning go out or if you're without.
-Home temperatures can be decreased by closing shades, blinds, drapes and curtains.
-Ceiling and portable fans can help circulate air.
-Air conditioners should be clean and free from debris. Also make sure the filter is clean and change when necessary.
