Ameren Illinois Electricity Rates Dropping
Ameren Illinois says most customers will see a drop in their electricity bills soon. Thanks to a reduction in wholesale prices, rates will decrease on June 1st. The new lower rates that show up on your bill as "Electric Supply" charges will save Ameren's average customers about $107 a year. Ameren says about two-thirds of a typical month's residential bill is made up of the actual cost of electricity and transmission charges.
