Metering and Monitoring

Track Usage. Target Savings.

Advanced sub-metering and energy monitoring can help your business gain crucial insight into when, where, and how much energy is being used in your facility. It enables management to assign utility costs to specific cost centers and facilitate better decision making with its operations. This information is very valuable when determining areas for energy efficiency improvements. Metering and Monitoring through Ameren Illinois can provide your business with cash incentives to install enhanced monitoring equipment and software, covering up to 100% of the cost.

  • Base incentive of up to $10,000* is paid once the new monitoring equipment or software is installed

  • Projects generated through Metering and Monitoring must be submitted within 24 months from the time your base incentive is approved
  • Program Allies can help with setting up your metering and monitoring equipment
  • Energy Advisors from Ameren Illinois are available free-of-charge to assist your business with the application process
  • Offer is limited to the first 40 applications received (limit of three applications per customer)
