Expect to see a slightly smaller number on your electric bills next year.
Ameren Illinois said a plan approved Wednesday by the Illinois Commerce Commission would save the average customer about $1.70 a month on their electric bill.
"We made a commitment to our customers and state regulators to build a stronger and more reliable electric distribution system and keep rates stable," said Richard J. Mark, chairman and president, Ameren Illinois. "The plan approved today demonstrates that prudent cost management and solid project execution can help our customers save."
This marks the second consecutive year Ameren Illinois has lowered rates.
