PSC Approves Change to Ameren Missouri's
Keeping Current Low Income Pilot Program
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a request filed by Union Electric Company d/b/a Ameren Missouri which will temporarily increase the qualifying federal poverty level associated with Ameren Missouri’s Keeping Current Low Income Pilot Program.
Under the change approved by the Commission, the qualifying federal poverty level will increase from 150 percent to 200 percent for the Keeping Current heating program and from 150 percent to 250 percent for Ameren Missouri’s Keeping Current cooling program. These increases in the qualifying federal poverty level will take effect on April 1, 2021 and remain in effect through December 31, 2021.
Ameren Missouri sought the change so that it can provide assistance to additional customers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Keeping Current Low Income Pilot Program is designed to provide bill payment assistance to eligible low-income customers.
Ameren Missouri provides electric service to approximately 1.2 million electric customers in Missouri.
