Today, Ameren Missouri filed a three-year energy efficiency plan (2016–2018) with the Missouri Public Service Commission (PSC). The plan includes a comprehensive portfolio of programs for business and residential customers, representing an investment of approximately $135 million over three years.
The investment is expected to provide more than $260 million in total customer benefits over the next 20 years. If approved by the PSC, the new ActOnEnergy® energy efficiency programs will begin in January 2016.
“This plan demonstrates our continued commitment to energy efficiency, which offers a wide variety of ways for our customers to reduce energy consumption and better manage their energy costs,” said Tara Oglesby, assistant vice president of customer experience at Ameren Missouri. “Investing in energy efficiency programs is the right thing to do for our customers and the environment.”
Since 2009, Ameren Missouri has invested approximately $155 million in energy efficiency programs, resulting in more than 1.25 million megawatt-hours saved annually by customers, which is equivalent to the energy consumption of more than 100,000 average Missouri homes.
In 2013, the company launched a three-year plan to implement the largest and most comprehensive portfolio of energy efficiency programs in the state’s history. Those programs have proven to be extremely successful and Ameren Missouri is on track to meet its three-year energy savings goal.
The new 2016–2018 energy efficiency plan includes 10 programs specifically designed to help Ameren Missouri business and residential customers reduce their energy use and save money. The programs offer a wide variety of energy-saving opportunities from reduced prices on energy efficient lighting to efficient HVAC replacement rebates and appliance recycling incentives.
