Ameren Sending Electric Rate Rebates Out This Week
By: Associated Press
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - The long wait is finally over for Ameren customers wanting electric rate relief.
Ameren officials announced Monday they will start sending out rebate checks and bill credits this week to partially pay back customers for soaring electric rates.
The rebates and credits are part of a one billion dollar package the utilities and state lawmakers agreed to this summer.
Ameren customers over the next month will see checks and credits worth about $140 million. They'll see at least 85 dollars back, cutting the increases they paid earlier this year by about 40 percent.
