Ameren's current residential electric rate for customers in Belleville is 10.628 cents/kilowatt-hour. Beginning in October, Ameren's rate will be 12.730 cents/kilowatt-hour. The current rate for the electric aggregation program through the City's contract with Homefield Energy is 4.29 cents/kilowatt-hour. The municipal aggregation rate is fixed through December 2022.
The majority of the residents of Belleville have participated in the city sponsored program for several years, and over those years the stability and cost effectiveness have been more economical than the Ameren utility rate. However, the city wants to be very clear that the program is the choice of each resident.
City officials believe that since this program’s inception in 2013, it has saved our residents and small businesses a significant amount of money. In our community’s aggregation program, residents are not required to sign a contract and there is no cost to leave or re-join the program. Residents may switch back to Ameren at any time by contacting Homefield Energy at 866-694-1262, or by emailing HomefieldCustCare@Dynegy.com.
Customers who choose to opt-out of the aggregation program are subject to a contract lock period, and the utility will not allow them to re-join the program or choose another supplier for 12 months.
If you are a new residential electric customer, or uncertain if you are enrolled in our community’s electric aggregation program, please contact Homefield Energy at 866-694-1262.
