Six easy ways to start the new year with simple energy-saving solutions
ST. LOUIS (Jan. 8, 2024) – January is the perfect time to start smart new habits and refresh old ones. If one of your resolutions is to save money this year, some simple technology upgrades, minor maintenance and a couple small shifts in lifestyle can go a long way in reducing home energy costs year-round.
With National Cut Your Energy Costs Day coming up on January 10, Ameren Missouri has put together a list of six energy savings resolutions for homeowners or renters to implement this year:
“Customers tend to use more energy in the winter since we’re usually spending more time inside,” said Tony Lozano, director of energy solutions at Ameren Missouri. “Making a few small changes can add up to hundreds of dollars a year in savings and build lifelong good energy usage habits. We also recommend customers track their energy usage through their online dashboard and consider enrolling in usage alerts to help them track their costs throughout the month."
Additional savings on smart thermostats, advanced power strips, LED bulbs and more can be found at Ameren.com/Missouri. Ameren Missouri customers who own or purchase a qualifying smart thermostat can also earn a $50 sign-up bonus and receive $25 annually for enrolling in the Peak Time Savings Program.
Ameren Missouri is committed to helping customers save and stay warm during the winter months, especially during challenging times. Qualifying homeowners and renters can receive assistance in the form of weatherization improvements to their homes, such as caulking, weather stripping and more, through local agencies and contractors.
