AMEREN FILES FOR DELIVERY RATE INCREASE

Ameren Illinois recently filed delivery service rate cases with the Illinois Commerce Commission to recover costs for delivering electricity and natural gas to more than one million homes and businesses in downstate Illinois.  State law requires Ameren to secure permission for additional cost recovery from the ICC.  The process to change delivery service rates takes eleven months so new rates would not take effect until early 2012.  Ameren is seeking an additional $51 million in cost recovery for natural gas delivery and $60 million for electricity delivery service.  Increases for typical customers are estimated at $1.88 - $4.53 more per month for natural gas and $2.96 - $3.78 more per month for electricity.  For more information, call 1-800-755-5000.
