Ameren Illinois wraps up storm restoration work

2 months, 4 weeks ago from Ameren Illinois

More than 200 field and support personnel aided neighboring utilities

Ameren Illinois is finalizing its efforts to restore power to customers in the northwest corner of its service territory who were affected by a strong line of thunderstorms that made their way through the state last night.

With power restored to 99 percent of affected customers, the company is dispatching more than 200 Ameren Illinois and contract personnel to northeast Illinois and northern Indiana to assist ComEd and Northern Indiana Public Service Company with remaining storm restoration work.

"Now that communities in the Ameren Illinois service territory have been stabilized, we are dispatching crews through the mutual assistance process to support the clean-up effort that is going on in northern Illinois and hard hit areas in Indiana," said Richard Mark, president and CEO of Ameren Illinois.

The mutual assistance process is a voluntary process that assists investor-owned utilities from across the country with coordination of personnel and resources following a storm or other large scale event.  The United States has seven Regional Mutual Assistance Groups, organized by geography, that help facilitate the mutual assistance process. Expenses incurred as a result of mutual assistance are taken care of by the requesting utility.

"Ameren Illinois co-workers and contractors are selflessly giving of themselves to help our neighbors, and I can't think of a better way to show our support during this time of need," Mark said.

Ameren Illinois delivers energy to 1.2 million electric and 807,000 natural gas customers in downstate Illinois, and our mission is to power the quality of life. Our service area covers more than 1,200 communities and 43,700 square miles.

@ursadailynews No. Hobart is seeking $1.8 million of equity from the city as an incentive. Money would come from the TIF.
