Ameren Program to reduce energy bills for families hit hardest by the pandemic recognized for prestigious award

When most of the world shut down to stay home in the spring of 2020, Ameren Missouri found a way to continue serving families hardest hit by the economic effects of the pandemic to help them save money on their energy bills while keeping them safe.

Ameren Missouri's Multifamily Low Income Energy Efficiency Program, in partnership with Spire, offered area residents a financial incentive to temporarily relocate while the International Center for Appropriate and Sustainable Technology (ICAST) performed energy efficiency upgrades to income-eligible multifamily properties - minimizing both families' and workers' COVID-19 exposure risks.

The work earned the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance's Inspiring Efficiency Award for innovation. Learn more >
