Small business owners across the state have been utilizing the Ameren Illinois Energy Efficiency Program to save energy and money. Through this program, we provide a quick and simple way to reduce energy costs for years to come. Qualifying small business customers can receive a free Lighting Assessment of their facility. Ameren Illinois works with all businesses including places of worship, car washes, automobile dealerships, small retail shops, bar and restaurant owners, laundry mats, municipal buildings, schools, nonprofit organizations…just to name a few!

This free Lighting Assessment usually takes 30-40 minutes. A qualified Program Ally will come to your small business and perform the assessment of your facility. They create a work scope that details upgrade opportunities of products they will install. Benefits businesses receive are lower energy costs, reduced maintenance, and a more comfortable work environment.
