Peoria Ameren’s electric bills will be skyrocketing this summer. Here’s why – Peoria Journal Star

PEORIA – If you felt like your energy bills last winter were higher than they were, you’re right.

But with summer coming and an intense combination of heat and humidity, the situation may not improve. Ameren spokesman Tucker Kennedy said this summer will hurt customers as the price of electricity – specifically the “supply” part of their bill, will rise. Not bad, actually.

Combined with a smaller increase in the “delivery” portion of the Ameren invoice, this would not be a good time for customers.

“Consumers are taking a double whammy across Illinois,” said Jim Chelson, a spokesperson for the Citizens Utility Board’s consumer support group. They were beaten on both sides of the bill. “

More explanation

Ameren residential invoice has two parts: the supply side and the delivery side. Chilsen said the supply side tends to be more market driven. The delivery fee includes the costs incurred by Ameren as well as some profits.
