Champaign: A Most Progressive City

by Rose Price

Champaign Declared A Most Progressive City In Illinois! Again.

I am so proud of our town.  For the second consecutive year, Ameren Illinois chose the City of Champaign as a Most Progressive City in Illinois, no doubt due to significant energy efficiency improvements and savings achieved by Champaign’s local businesses and residents.

Mayor Feinen, commenting on the award, said, “The City of Champaign is honored to once again be recognized as a Most Progressive City by Ameren Illinois. This award is a reminder of the impact we can each have when we work together to improve energy efficiency and reduce waste. I thank Ameren Illinois for this award and for continuing to assist the City towards its goal of becoming a model for environmental sustainability.”

The stats are mind blowing!

Between June 1, 2014, and May 31, 2015, Champaign residential and business customers completed a total of 1,025 energy efficiency projects, thanks to Ameren Illinois’ program.  Champaign businesses and residents are now saving more than 3.2 million kilowatt-hours of electricity and more than 213,500 therms of natural gas every year; the equivalent to removing more than 7.4 million pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or removing approximately 660 cars from the road.  WOW!

“The Most Progressive City Award is our way of recognizing those communities that exemplify a strong commitment to environmental stewardship,” said Richard J. Mark, president of Ameren Illinois. “By taking advantage of Ameren Illinois’ energy efficiency programs, these communities are reducing their impact on the environment, increasing their energy savings and improving their economic competitiveness.”

***As part of  “Champaign Growing Greener”, the City has partnered with Ameren Illinois and set aside funds to help residents pay for energy efficiency improvements in their homes and for a limited time, Champaign residents may qualify for free home energy audits and receive a 20% bonus incentive to improve insulation or seal air and duct leaks***

To learn more about these incentives or to schedule a free energy audit, call Ameren Illinois at 1-866-838-6918 and mention the “City of Champaign Resident Discount”.
