An Insight into Ameren's Business Model
A financially strong Ameren is good for our customers and the communities we serve.
We use our profits to fund projects that will maintain and enhance infrastructure and pay dividends to shareholders who help fund the infrastructure needed to keep the lights on and gas flowing.
|Why is our success important to you?|
|Strong financial health allows us to meet your energy needs in a safe, reliable, efficient and environmentally responsible manner.|
|Strong credit ratings help keep Ameren's borrowing costs down, which helps keep rates lower.|
|What about the prices?|
|Customers' electric and natural gas rates are set by regulators – in our case, the Missouri Public Service Commission or the Illinois Commerce Commission. We're also regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Utilities such as Ameren represent about 70% of the U.S. electric power industry
