There is more help for people struggling to pay their utility bills under a new agreement from the Illinois Commerce Commission. The agreement covers major utilities including Ameren assisting both qualifying residential and small business customers during the pandemic. Carrie Zalewski, Chairman of the Illinois Commerce Commission says that it includes flexible payment plans or if you have a lot of debt.
The best part Zalewski says is that customers hit hard by the pandemic won’t have to go through red tape to qualify.
