The Ameren Illinois Utilities deliver electricity to your home and business. In 1997, Illinois state law restructured the investor-owned electric utilities, which led to the separation of electric generation from distribution. Natural gas utilities previously had been restructured in the same way. As a result, the Ameren Illinois Utilities no longer generate electricity, but rather only distribute electricity and natural gas to you.
So think of the Ameren Illinois Utilities as your delivery service, moving energy to your door. Similar to UPS®, FedEx® and other delivery services, we don’t produce the contents, nor do we set the price of the contents, we simply deliver them to you in a safe and reliable manner.
