ICC Hearing
Wednesday, Aug. 30 @ 10:30 am
Illinois Commerce Commission
527 East Capitol Ave
Hearing Room A, First Floor, Leland Building
Springfield, IL 62701

Ameren is asking the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) to break their commitments made in the Future Energy Jobs Act. They have proposed to fall short of the legislation’s Energy Efficiency savings goals by 27% for the next four years. 

Lowering targets allows them to collect a $36 million bonus for exceeding them - at the expense of consumers. If the targets are lowered, Ameren customers in southern Illinois will be paying higher energy bills and will lose out on job creation and economic development benefits associated energy efficiency while ComEd customers reap all the benefits. 

We'll be speaking up at the ICC hearing and you can join us by helping to ensure the hearing room is packed.
