Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions?

Why should I participate in the Ameren Illinois Multifamily Properties incentive offering?

If you own or manage a qualified property, the Multifamily Properties offering provides incentives to help you make money-saving upgrades to your property’s individual units and common areas. You may also qualify for direct installation assistance from Ameren Illinois — making it even easier for both you and your tenants to achieve energy savings.

What does the Multifamily Properties incentive offering cost me?

In most cases, nothing. The following energy efficiency products are provided at no cost to participating property owners and managers:


  • LEDs
  • High efficiency showerheads
  • Faucet aerators
  • Smart power strips
  • Thermostats (installation charges may apply)


Property owners may also be eligible to receive financial incentives from Ameren Illinois for air sealing and insulating the units (property must meet certain requirements).

This seems too good to be true. What's the catch?

There is absolutely no catch. Ameren Illinois' Multifamily Property incentives are designed to help participating property owners and/or managers offset most or all of the cost to install energy-efficient products in their property’s individual units and common areas.

For other energy efficiency measures, such as air sealing and insulation­, the property owner may only be required to pay a fraction of the cost, while incentives covers the rest.
