Ameren Missouri Wins Approval of New Energy Efficiency Program Plan
Residential and business customer programs will begin this spring

Ameren Missouri business and residential customers will have the opportunity to participate in a new three-year portfolio of energy efficiency programs starting this spring. Approved in an order issued by the Missouri Public Service Commission (PSC) today, the new plan is expected to provide more than $425 million in total customer benefits over the next 20 years.

“The plan demonstrates our continued commitment to energy efficiency, which offers a variety of ways for customers to reduce energy consumption and better manage their energy costs,” said Dan Laurent, Director, Energy Services for Ameren Missouri. “We’re investing approximately $158 million over three years to offer a comprehensive portfolio of programs for our residential and business customers.”

The new energy efficiency plan includes 11 programs specifically designed to help Ameren Missouri customers reduce their energy use and save money. Programs include reduced prices on energy efficient lighting to rebates for HVAC upgrades and energy efficient products. The three-year energy savings goal for the new plan is 570,000 MWh, equivalent to the energy used by nearly 45,000 homes. 

Missouri was the first investor-owned utility in Missouri to implement an energy efficiency program under the MEEIA legislation and remains the largest and most comprehensive portfolio of programs in Missouri’s history. For the better part of a decade, since 2009, Ameren Missouri has committed to invest more than $375 million to support its 1.2 million customers’ efforts to use energy more efficiently. Ameren Missouri worked diligently with a variety of regulatory stakeholders to create the plan.
