Ameren Illinois has announced proposed legislation called the Downstate Clean Energy Affordability Act
"Under the plan, Ameren Illinois will invest in local renewable energy development, transportation electrification, and battery storage," Ameren said
Ameren said that the proposal would, "enable Ameren Illinois to construct and operate local solar and battery storage facilities."
Ameren said that the proposal, "offsets downstate customer costs by crediting the monetary value of energy and capacity from the solar and battery facilities back to Ameren Illinois customers."
"Illinois needs to make meaningful progress toward a clean energy future and that requires innovation, certainty, and solutions from a partner with the track record for delivering results," said Richard J. Mark, Chairman and President, Ameren Illinois.
