Energy Savings Programs


Ameren Illinois Savings

In an effort to help Ameren customers become smarter and safer energy consumers, Ameren’s Act on Energy program was created to help Illinois businesses and public facilities find access to programs, rebates and cash incentives for reducing energy costs. To learn about cost savings options for a company/organization, start by scheduling a free energy assessment with an Ameren Energy Advisor. 


Morton’s Ameren advisor is Steven Smith.  He can be reached by phone at 309-212-5831 or by e-mail at Steven.L.Smith@leidos.comMr. Smith will provide a report with project recommendations, project costs, and potential savings.  He would then help your company implement the recommendations for maximum savings.
