If you’re an Ameren Illinois business customer who purchases and installs Illinois-manufactured products in your facility while completing an energy efficiency project, the Made in Illinois Bonus is for you! Your facility could receive up to 20% more incentive dollars on your energy efficiency projects* — shortening your project payback period even further!
