The world of energy is rapidly changing. To ensure its customers have the latest information on technologies, products and alternative energy, Ameren Missouri now offers three new information resources and a variety of ways to access them:
• Energy Advisor
• Energy Learning Center
As Ameren Missouri leads the way to a secure energy future, the company is taking on a new role, Energy Advisor. The company developed two comprehensive tools, online and by phone, to address customer questions about energy.
AmerenMissouri.com/EnergyAdvisor combines the company's knowledge and expertise with facts about today's energy issues to make accessing information easier for customers. Energy Advisor is the one source for information on energy efficiency, renewable energy, customer-owned solar and wind generation, and smart grid technology.
"Ameren Missouri is not only focused on providing the energy that powers people's lives and Missouri's economy, but our employees are also prepared to offer guidance when customers need it to make informed choices about their energy usage," said Richard Mark, senior vice president of Ameren Missouri Customer Operations.
Customers can research topics at the website, AmerenMissouri.com/EnergyAdvisor, or speak directly with a specially trained Energy Advisor by calling 1.866.422.4605, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
Ameren Missouri constructed the largest multi-technology solar installation in the state as part of its vision to lead the way to a secure and sustainable energy future. The company is testing four solar technologies to compare performance and reliability in a Midwestern climate.
At AmerenSolar.com, customers can now access, in real-time, data on how much energy each solar technology generates atop Ameren Missouri's headquarters. Using easy-to-read graphs and charts, the website also provides customers insight into how net metering works, as well as information on rebates and other financial incentives. By advising customers on this issue, they can make a more informed decision whether solar power is right for their home or business.
Energy Learning Center
Hands-on education is available at the Energy Learning Center, located overlooking Ameren Missouri's rooftop solar installation. Here, tour groups can access the latest information on various renewable energy sources - including solar, energy efficiency options for their homes or businesses, and environmental upgrades throughout the Ameren system. To book a tour for a group or organization, go to the Energy Learning Center Section of AmerenSolar.com.
No matter what questions customers have or which option they choose to find an answer, Ameren Missouri is ready to be their trusted source for energy information.
