Energy Reductions Can Reap Rewards

The Ameren Illinois PEAK TIME REWARDS® (PTR) program is for residential electric customers with a smart meter billed wirelessly over the advanced two-way communications network. It's one more option that can help you reduce your energy usage and costs.

How the PTR Program Works

  • Activate your participation before March 1 each year to reap potential rewards when the PTR program year begins on June 1 for Ameren Illinois.
  • Earn a reward by reducing your electricity below your personal usage baseline calculated from previous usage.
  • Review your estimated rewards - bill credits - via your Ameren Illinois online account under the Usage tab and see how much you saved each month under the Bill History tab and on your monthly bill.

Note: PTR events can be called at any time during the year, but will most likely occur during hot summer afternoons. Customers will be notified of PTR events via their preferred contact method(s) including a phone call, text message or email chosen at the time of enrollment. Customers can also find the latest information on upcoming events and tips to save energy and money on the PeakTimeRewards.com Event Center.
