Ameren Illinois, Our History 
 
Ameren was created by the December 1997 merger of CIPSCO Incorporated (parent company of Central Illinois Public Service which became know as AmerenCIPS) and Union Electric Company. In 2003 Ameren grew with the acquisition of CILCORP, Inc., parent of Central Illinois Light Company, which became known as AmerenCILCO, and in 2004 Ameren acquired Illinois Power Company - which became AmerenIP. In October 2010 AmerenCIPS, AmerenCILCO and AmerenIP officially merged to become Ameren Illinois.
