New tool helps Ameren Missouri customers save money and track energy costs

Energy Manager online tool provides customized insights to measure usage and manage your energy your way

ST. LOUIS (Sept. 15, 2022) – What’s the monthly cost of running the washer and dryer or watching TV? With Ameren Missouri’s new Energy Manager dashboard, the guessing game is over. Customers can see how much energy each appliance uses, giving families the power to adjust usage habits, along with custom energy-saving tips.

“We know customers want to save where they can, and it can be difficult to know which steps can make the biggest impact,” said Tara Oglesby, vice president of customer experience for Ameren Missouri. “With Energy Manager, customers can see the cost of running each appliance, down to the dollar. It also provides practical recommendations for saving energy and money that are specific to your home and lifestyle.”

Once in Energy Manager, customers can complete a short survey about their home and appliances so Ameren Missouri can provide even more accurate usage data, including:

  • Charts that show how much energy you use at different times of the day, as well as weekly, monthly and annual usage.
  • How your energy use compares with other homes your size.
  • Recommendations on how to reduce energy use.
  • Monthly bill comparisons to track how adjustments have contributed to savings.

“Now that customers can see exactly how much energy each appliance is using, they’ll have a better idea of how to make adjustments to cut costs while maintaining comfort,” said Tony Lozano, director of energy solutions at Ameren Missouri. “Using energy more efficiently can be as simple as swapping out old lightbulbs for LEDs, turning your air conditioner up a degree or two or waiting until your dishwasher is full before starting a cycle.”

To access Energy Manager insights, recommendations and the home survey, customers should visit AmerenMissouri.com/MyEnergy, or log in to their Ameren Missouri Online Account via desktop or mobile device.

From the account dashboard, customers can also sign up for special alerts that notify customers of their energy usage throughout the month. This helps customers adjust usage habits in real time to control costs and better anticipate upcoming energy statements.
