(Taylorville)—The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard about choices Ameren residential customers have, from one of their spokespersons, at Tuesday’s weekly meeting at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
Kenny Blum told Kiwanis members that due to electricity deregulation in Illinois, Ameren customers can choose their electric supplier. All Ameren does now, is deliver the electricity to their customers. Blum added that the area’s recent vote allowing electric aggregation, is one of the ways customers can choose their electricity supplier.
Blum also told the Kiwanis Club that as a result of electricity deregulation, power suppliers in Illinois must purchase 25% of their power from renewable sources by the year 2025, and that Ameren is presently at 6%. He urged Kiwanis members to go to the web site actonenergy-dot-com to learn about ways Ameren customers can save money on their power bills.
Kiwanis treasurer Dan Sneed reported that the club’s recent pancake and sausage breakfast fund raiser has so far netted the club over 27-hundred dollars for local Kiwanis projects for children and youth.
WTIM local farm broadcaster Jared White, was a guest at Tuesday’s Taylorville Kiwanis Club meeting, in honor of National Agriculture Day.
