Tell the ICC: Protect the Ameren rate cut!

20130113_StopAmeren_enewsIt’s not often you get good news about your electric bill, but Ameren customers were happy to hear that the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) ordered a $45 million electric rate cut, which went into effect on Jan. 1.

Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for Ameren to file a “petition for rehearing.” That’s an appeal before the ICC, asking state regulators to reconsider their ruling and reduce the amount of money Ameren has to give back to customers. Tony Reid, of the Decatur Herald & Review, one of the best utility reporters in the state, broke the story on Ameren’s filing.

This week, CUB urged Ameren customers to use our Action Network to send a message to the ICC to protect the rate cut.

We’ll keep you posted on developments before the ICC. In the meantime, send a message!
