Energy Management System (EMS) Pilot Program


Eligible public and private schools, as well as tax-exempt organizations, have an exciting new opportunity to participate in Ameren Missouri's BizSavers® Energy Efficiency Program. The Energy Management System (EMS) Pilot Program is your chance to take advantage of generous incentives for implementing new technologies that also help reduce energy usage and costs over the long term.

What is EMS?
Energy Management Systems monitor, control and optimize the performance of equipment and resources in a facility, reducing energy while providing real-time monitoring of energy consumption for the entire building or on specific equipment.

EMS can manage functions such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, fire alarm systems, security, maintenance and energy management, acting as a central control hub to maximize service while minimizing energy consumption.

How You Can Save

Installing new EMS equipment and software in an existing facility can lower your energy statements by providing long-term energy and demand reduction. As part of the EMS Pilot Program, eligible public and private schools, as well as tax-exempt organizations can receive incentives for 50% of the total EMS project costs. This enhanced incentive is a significant increase over the regular Custom Incentive rates.

Pairing the EMS Pilot Program savings with other Ameren Missouri BizSavers Programs can multiply the savings. Some examples of other incentive-eligible upgrades include replacing inefficient fluorescent, incandescent or HID lights with LEDs and installing occupancy sensors, heat pumps, cooling controls or ventilation equipment.
