MEA Savings Calculator
Ameren's default rate depends on the amount of electricity you use.
- The rate is lower for 8 months during heating season (Oct-Dec and Jan-May) for usage above 800 kWh/month.
- If you have electric heat or use space heaters, you may be using more than 800 kWh in a month.
To use this calculator, you should enter your monthly electricity usage in kWh (usually your power bill has the past 12 months usage). The default electric supply rates (cents/kWh) for comparison entered here are the average Ameren summer and winter rates over the past 2 years (Oct 2015 through Sep 2017). Urbana's negotiated Municipal Electric Aggregation rate is currently 6.007 cents, but will be 5.757 cents starting February of 2018 and 5.653 cents beginning June 2019.
