Easy Savings Tips

More Choices, More Ways to Save

Ameren Missouri now offers a range of residential rate options, including Off-Peak/On-Peak rates. With these rates, you can save by shifting your energy usage to off-peak hours, when demand is lower and you'll pay less. Finding the rate that's right for your lifestyle can add up to savings for you. 

BASIC RATE: Less effort required for success on this rate.

How It Works
You’ll pay the same rate for all the energy you use. You don’t have to change your ways, but to save on this rate you'll have to use less energy.

Is this rate a good fit for you?
Do you want to keep things as simple as possible and keep using energy the way you do today? This is the rate you're familiar with – you are charged one rate for energy no matter when you use it. Residential customers with an AMR or an upgraded AMI-enabled meter qualify for this rate option.

Summer: June through September
Winter:
October through May

Note: Rates are rounded to the nearest tenth of a cent.

 Anytime Summer Rates   Anytime Winter Rates

BASIC RATE: Less effort required for success on this rate.

How It Works
You’ll pay a discounted rate on the energy you use between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m., so you can save if you shift some of your usage to that time window. For example, set the delay function on your dishwasher and other appliances to run at night. You'll be charged a rate that’s slightly lower than what you’ve been paying for energy you use from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Is this rate a good fit for you?
Are you out of the house by 9? Do you spend most of the day at work? Do you run a few errands before coming home? To save on this rate, you need to change when you use energy. Coming in 2021; you must have an upgraded AMI-enabled meter to qualify for this rate.
