Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L) an electricity utility, has launched a new section of its web site providing bill analysis capabilities that help customers manage their energy costs. The Home Energy Analyser provides personalised benchmarks of costs as compared with similar homes, causes of bill changes, hourly use analysis, examination of the energy costs of appliances, and an estimation of how much can be saved by managing how the appliances are used.

Nexus Energy Software was chosen to provide its ENERGYprism® web-based software system as the basis for the Home Energy Analyser. ENERGYprism’s bill analysis is based on advanced models that use bill history and interval meter data, as well as weather and information provided by customers.
