|Savings for Educational and Congregational
|Schools, universities, daycare centers, churches, synagogues and other places of worship are great candidates for energy efficiency incentives from Ameren Missouri's BizSavers® program. Whether your organization is not-for-profit or for-profit, public or private, you can save money by operating more efficiently while also benefiting from a cash incentive to offset the initial cost of your investment.|
Popular Efficiency Measures
||Educational and religious facilities can replace inefficient lighting like metal halides and T-12 fluorescent lighting with more efficient T-8s or T-5s. HID lighting, LEDs, and occupancy sensors are also valuable money-saving upgrades that are eligible for cash incentives.
||By replacing inefficient HVAC systems, schools and places of worship can save big! Consider installing heat pumps with high EERs or adding controls to your equipment, which dramatically reduces wasted energy.
||Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are a great energy saving measure for educational and religious facilities. Installing VFDs on fixed-speed fans and pumps can save 10-50% in energy costs.
||Several commercial cooking equipment upgrades are eligible for cash incentives from the BizSavers program and can help your school or religious organization save money every month! Check out our incentives for ENERGY STAR® holding cabinets.

Options to Save Energy and Earn Cash Incentives
|Incentives are paid on a per unit-installed basis and are available for a variety of qualified improvements. Projects that include all Standard measures do not require pre-approval unless the incentive is anticipated to be more than $10,000. For incentives more than $10,000, please see Custom Incentive below. Eligibility for a Standard Incentive requires customers to install measures achieving a minimum total incentive of $150 per application. All Standard Incentive applications must be submitted within 180 days of equipment invoice date.
Get Started! Apply for a Standard Incentive now and receive an incentive check 45-60 days after completion paperwork is received.
|If your project is not on the Standard Incentives list, it may qualify for a Custom Incentive. Virtually any cost-effective energy efficient project qualifies for a Custom Incentive. These incentives are calculated based on the projected annual energy reduction.
Get Started! Custom Incentives require pre-approval before purchase or installation. Apply for a Custom Incentive today.
|New Construction Incentives|
|Starting from scratch or completing a renovation? Incentives are available through the New Construction program. These incentives must be pre-approved prior to the Design Phase of the project.
Get Started! New Construction Incentives require Program involvement before Design Team meetings begin. Please review the New Construction Handbook and New Construction Guidelines, then contact us to begin the application process.
|Whole Building Performance/Retro-Commissioning Incentives (RCx)|
|Retro-Commissioning (RCx) is the process of optimizing systems within your building and requires an extensive facility assessment to explore energy-saving opportunities. RCx is a good solution for large buildings. The program pays $.02-.03 per kWh for the assessment (depending on size of the building), in addition to $.07 per kWh saved on all RCx projects.
Get Started! You must use a pre-approved RCx service provider (RSP), so contact an RSP to get started today.
