Elevate Energy

Advanced meters are a part of the smart grid and Ameren Illinois’ overall energy delivery upgrades and improvements. Over time, all of these upgrades and new technologies will work together to provide consumers with more reliable service and new opportunities and options to better manage their energy usage and costs.


As these technologies continue to advance, advanced meters will provide detailed energy usage information and will make it easier for customers to take an active role in controlling their energy usage. We’re very excited about the evolution of creative pricing program options such as Peak Time Rebate that will help customers save money and save energy.

Energy drives everything we do. By making continuous improvements to the electric delivery system, and making the grid smarter, energy will more efficiently reach customers and businesses, allowing them to take advantage of the many benefits of the advanced meter technology.

Customers will be able to benefit with improved service reliability and access to better information they can use to take control of their energy usage and costs. Ameren Illinois’ plan is exactly what is needed to progressively move Illinois’ energy infrastructure forward to the 21st century.
