AmerenCilco is a monopoly. I wrote the Attorney Gereral of Illinois about them and AmerenCilco rote a letter in response saying how the rate increase will help us. Well, let us see what is in the paper. AmerenCilco profits are up 76 percent and people are applying for government aid to heat their homes. I think this speaks more than the AmerenCilco canned reply and the rebate check they gave people were a joke. Write the Attorney General of Illinois and the Better Business Bureau about Amerencilco illegally creating a monopoly. If nothing else you will fell better.

Well my son is moving and needs new residential customer service, and they got an estimate for $9,186.00. Broken down that is 1 Pole for 2200.00, 1750.000 for a Primary Riser, 354' of line at $9.00 a foot for $3,186.00 ands $2,500.00 for a junction box totaling $9,186.00 from Ameron, and when Mid American Energy was called they said it would be under $500.00 for the same new service. I am appalled. He is moving to be near his wifes family due to health issues, and gets slapped with a bill like this? What can you do anything? Help?

Now that would be hard to answer since the year is not yet over. ultimately the answer will be no AEE did not post record profits for '07. The big oil companies wont post record profits either; exxon-mobil probably wont report a 10 Billion dollar profit for the quarter; maybe just 9 billion. maybe we should freeze the price of crude and gasoline and save all the worlds problems because they are making too much money obviously since all of the facts are crystal clear.
