Metro East

At Ameren Illinois, we are committed to providing safe and reliable service to customers by making enhancements to the system that makes the energy grid stronger for customers now and tomorrow.

Enhanced Energy Grid

  • Installed outage detection technology throughout the Metro East. These devices reduce the number of customers affected by an outage.
  • Expanded the substation at 20th Street and Martin Luther King Drive to provide added resiliency to customers in East St. Louis and additional poles and lines that create alternate pathways with other substations to re-route and deliver power if an outage occurs.
  • Constructed more than three miles of new power lines between Dupo and Centerville substations to create an additional circuit tie.
  • Enhanced the Stallings electric substation for Granite City and Edwardsville by expanding the capacity of the unit with an additional transformer.
  • Added outage detection technology to two different circuits in Bethalto and one circuit in Rosewood Heights. This enhancement better integrates Bethalto and Rosewood Heights with the energy grid.

Enhanced Natural Gas Delivery System

  • Replaced approximately 2,400 feet of distribution main with new coated steel pipe that will fully protect the pipeline from corrosion, while allowing for increased system capacity, safety and reliability to natural gas customers served in the Madison area.
  • Replaced the Columbia natural gas delivery station and upgraded pressure protection equipment to assure natural gas system reliability.
