Energy efficiency charge to return to Ameren bills

Ameren Missouri bills will rise by a little over $2 per month for the average household as the utility restarts its energy efficiency program.

The increase will pay for the second three-year cycle of Ameren Missouri’s energy efficiency rebates that help customers pay for more efficient appliances and building system improvements.

After the programs lapsed for several months while the utility hammered out a redesigned program with regulators, a special energy efficiency charge on customer bills went away. The charge should reappear during the June billing month.
