I compared my rates with my friends in MO today. In IL we are running about 13 cents winter and 11 cents summer. In MO they are about 5 cent winter and 9 cent summer. I simply took the electric bills divided by the KWH in order to include all the BS fees etc. In IL we used to be around the same as Missouri is now before our rate increases. This is crazy! My friends in MO didn't believe it until we compared bills!

The rate bill is a joke. The relief will be minor at best. There is nothing in it that makes it a law to stop them doing it again next year. Only half of the billion dollars is coming to the consumer. The rest goes to other things like a company to monitor ameren power purchases. Wait a minute isn't there all ready a co. that does that CUB (Citizens Utility Board). For us all elec. only money in our pocket will be relief, along with all the other minor help from the bill.
