Tell the Illinois Commerce Commission NO to Cutting Investment in Central and Southern Illinois.

Use our Simple Form to Tell the Illinois Commerce Commission NO to Cutting Investment in Central and Southern Illinois.

Late last year, the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) rejected Ameren Illinois’ integrated grid plan which would have provided needed investments in energy infrastructure for Central and Southern Illinois. According to an economic impact analysis from the University of Illinois, the ICC’s decision to cancel these investments will have severe consequences for local businesses, workers, and our communities:

  • $2 billion in lost economic opportunity.
  • 1,500 jobs will be lost.
  • Threats to service reliability.

Downstate residents and businesses must speak with one voice and tell the ICC:

  • NO to cutting vital infrastructure projects.
  • NO to cutting jobs.
  • NO to stifling economic growth.

Please help. Use a simple form to send a letter to the Illinois Commerce Commission urging them to approve Ameren Illinois’ grid plan. Personalize the letter to reflect your own experiences and your working relationship with Ameren. Together, we’ll help Illinois regulators and policy makers understand the impact energy policy decisions have on Downstate businesses, workers, and our communities.
