STC - Uninterupted Service


One of the most important advantages Kansas City offers is its inherent protection against energy black-outs. Kansas City consistently ranks among the best for constant, uninterrupted service. The Kansas City region boasts one of the most robust energy delivery networks in the world. Transmission systems are designed so the loss of any particular generator or transmission line has no effect on supplies across the region.


KCP&L offers a five-year decreasing discount equivalent to one year of free electricity. KCP&L also offers one of the lowest utility costs in the country (approximately .05¢ per kWh), significantly decreasing operating expenses.

“Kansas City is a strategic market for our local cloud, colocation and data center infrastructure. As we looked to expand into the Kansas City area, the unique attributes of the Hunt Midwest partnership and the unique STC underground facility made our decision to locate here an easy one.”
