ILLINOIS (RFD) — While utility bills are rising, Ameren Illinois is reminding customers of a program that could save them money. Using less electricity cuts the bill, but using less during certain times could be worth a rebate. Victoria Bussey with Ameren says customers in the Peak Time Rewards program get notices from time to time about high demand days. If they cut their energy use enough for a few hours on those days, Ameren credits their bill.
The sign-up deadline to guarantee getting in this year is March 1. After that, you would be put on a waiting list.
