How to Earn Peak Time Rewards!

iStock_000010028914SmallThanks to advanced electric meters, active program participants have the opportunity to earn $1.51 for each kilowatt hour (kWh) of energy they reduce during Peak Time Rewards events between June 1, 2016 and May 31, 2017.

Top tips for earning credits off your Ameren Illinois bill:

  • Turn up your thermostat by 4 degrees.
  • Switch your air conditioner to fan mode.
  • Avoid using large appliances like dishwashers and dryers.
  • Turn off TVs and computers.

Avoiding large appliances during Peak Time Rewards events, along with tools like a programmable thermostat and light timers, can help you reduce your electricity usage. You can also use Ameren Illinois’ other energy-saving programs to help you take the right actions to earn more rewards. Visit Ameren Illinois Energy Efficiency programs for tips and additional incentives to help you save.  For information about how much electricity common household appliances use, check out our earlier post here.

Remember, there is no limit to the rewards you can earn during Peak Time Rewards events. The more you reduce, the more you can earn!
