To participate in the program, an electric customer must be registered with a designated Keeping Current Agency which includes Community Action Agencies in AmerenUE’s electric service area and additional social service agencies that also administer AmerenUE Dollar More energy assistance funds.
Some low-income customers of AmerenUE will be receiving help paying their utility bills. A two year pilot program designed to assist certain those customers has just started. The “Keeping Current Low-Income Pilot Program” provides for tiered bill credits, arrearage forgiveness and a requirement for eligible customers to apply for available Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and weatherization assistance. The program will be funded by AmerenUE shareholders and its customers. For an AmerenUE residential customer, the program will cost $0.03 a month.
