Ameren Illinois Power Smart Pricing
Power Smart Pricing (PSP) is an hourly electricity pricing program for residential customers served by Ameren Illinois. PSP participants pay electricity prices that vary from hour to hour and day to day according to the actual market price. By contrast, under the standard residential rate, the price only varies between summer and non-summer months. Participants can manage their electricity costs by taking simple actions to conserve energy during hours when prices are higher.
PSP uses “day-ahead” prices, meaning the price for each hour of the day is set the evening in advance, and are available after 6 p.m. Participants can check hourly prices online anytime or call 1-877-655-6028. Participants can also receive high price alerts by email, phone, text, or on Twitter.
Since the program began in 2007, PSP participants have saved more than 15 percent on the electricity supply portion of their electricity bill, as compared with what they would have paid with Ameren’s fixed-price rate.
