Ameren Getting Metro-East Power Grid Upgrade

Ameren is investing millions to install a smart grid and smart meters at homes in the Metro East.  The “Belleville News Democrat” reports the company is spending over 20-million dollars in improvements to reduce the area’s number of outages and wasted energy.  The upgrades are possible by state legislation passed in 2011, and a three-dollar-40-cent charger per year on the customer’s bill.
