Demand Response Program

Through Ameren Missouri's Demand Response Program, businesses can earn cash incentives by reducing nonessential energy use when the grid needs it most.


What is Demand Response?

Demand response programs are a win-win for businesses and their surrounding communities. Why? Businesses participating in the program earn cash incentives by simply reducing their energy consumption temporarily in response to periods of peak demand on the grid. And when businesses reduce energy during high-demand hours, it makes energy more reliable and cost-effective for everyone.

How It Works

Commercial and industrial Ameren Missouri customers, such as manufacturers, schools, data centers, cold storage, and others can easily participate in the Demand Response Program. Our team works with you to establish an energy savings plan that includes actions like adjusting HVAC setpoints, reducing lighting, modifying production lines, or switching to backup generation during periods of high grid stress.
