Ameren Illinois Invites Business and Non-Profit Customers to

“Get in the Game”

COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (March 19, 2014) – Hundreds of business owners, non-profit representatives, municipal officials and vendors are expected to participate in Ameren Illinois’ 5th annual ActOnEnergy® Business Symposiums on Tues, June 3 in Collinsville and Wed, June 4 in East Peoria. The events are free and open to any Ameren Illinois business customer.


The award-winning event offers a “one-stop shop” for learning how to take advantage of energy efficiency rebates and incentives that will make your business more competitive and profitable. During the symposium, you will also learn about the latest energy efficiency trends, network with trusted contractors, gain access to new clients and network with business peers. This year’s baseball theme encourages customers to get in the energy efficiency game and learn how to score real energy savings in their facility.

In addition to engaging breakout sessions on a variety of topics, the events will feature a keynote address from Joe Abernathy, vice-president of Stadium Operations for the St. Louis Cardinals. Abernathy is responsible for the day-to-day facility operations and game-day event management activities at the 42,500-seat Busch Stadium. Under his leadership, the Cardinals embarked on a new sustainability plan, “4 a Greener Game,” and have reduced solid waste by 30%, energy use by 20%, and water use by 10% in the ballpark.
