Improving Your Energy Service
System upgrades will reduce outages and keep up with your energy needs.
 
Today's customers have high expectations for the energy that powers their quality of life. That's why we are focused on building the next generation energy delivery system for Central and Southern Illinois.

We have embarked on an ambitious five year, $3.5 billion plan to improve the efficiency and reliability of the natural gas and electric energy delivery system throughout our 43,700 square-mile territory.  Over time, these upgrades will give customers information they can use to take control of their energy usage and reduce costs.

 

  • We are fortifying utility poles, installing automated switches and sensors and installing advanced meters and modules, which helps us detect and isolate outages faster.

 

  • We are strengthening the integrity, safety and reliability of the natural gas delivery system by replacing gas transmission systems and gas distribution facilities to improve service.

 

In fact, customers are beginning to experience the benefits of a long-term approach for upgrading the state's electric delivery infrastructure.

 

  • System reliability has improved 20% and customers have saved an estimated $57 million a year since 2012.

 

  • Since January 2012, we have added 250 employees and an additional 1,000 contract workers providing a needed economic boost to central and southern Illinois.

 

 
Upgrading the natural gas and electric delivery system is ongoing.  You can track our progress by checking out our project summary.
