New Energy Assistance Program Available

En español | Ameren Missouri is now offering a pilot energy-assistance program to very low-income electric customers to help make utility payments more affordable for those customers.

“Keeping Current” targets customers who fall at 100 percent or below the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and those up to 135 percent of the FPL with special circumstances.

“Keeping Current” consists of two main components: a heating program and a cooling program. As part of the heating program, customers who qualify will receive monthly bill credits and see a reduction in the amount they owe on past due Ameren Missouri electric bills (arrearage reduction), if they remain enrolled in the program. Customers must keep current on their bills to continue receiving benefits of the heating program. Cooling program participants will receive bill credits during the summer months of June, July and August to help offset the costs of higher electric bills due to the heat.

Ameren Missouri will contribute $1 million from company profits to help fund “Keeping Current” for two years. Electric customers will contribute to the program through a surcharge, which will cost residential customers about 3 cents per month. This pilot program was created as part of a collaboration with AARP/Consumer Council of Missouri, Inc.; Missouri Public Service Commission (PSC) staff; the Missouri Industrial Energy Consumers; and the Missouri Retailers Association.
