Residents of Illinois should soon start paying less for their electricity and natural gas. The Illinois Commerce Commission, which regulates public utilities, has ordered 22 companies to reduce their rates or show why they shouldn't have to.
The Illinois Commerce Commission approved a rates increase for Ameren Illinois. The commission approved delivery rate increases that will allow Ameren Illinois to raise typical residential natural gas bills and electric bills by $2 a month. The new rates are expected to appear on customer bills starting in January.
