Had the rate never happened in the first place, none of us would be facing the hard hit increases we are now seeing.
Everyone was ALL for the freeze - once again greed took precidence and now look at the price being paid.
Thanks government.

Ameren says that they cannot pay their bills, however, other energy companies in Illinois are not raising their rates to 55% or more. What bills are they talking about, the restoration of things that they are responsible for because they did not maintain themselves, or the actual cost of purchasing and reasonably supplying power to Illinois residents. I believe what we are paying for is Missouri residents as well, because Missouri put a freeze on their rates. Ameren, be reasonable.

Nov. 118.00 Dec. 132.00 Jan. 132.00, Feb. 186.00, March 274.00 They say we still owe 346.00 from back budget billing.. We were adjusting the owed budget before jan of 160.00 all of a sudden it is 346, and we have used LESS energy? Guess we can forget about food, gas money, or any other utility since AMEREN is so irrationally changing rates. B-Tards.
