Paying the electric bill at times can be a struggle, especially if your on a tight budget. Ameren Illinois and PCCEO partnered together to provide customers with a one-time grant of $150.

The one-time grant was for eligible customers who are living in Peoria and meet low-income requirements during the Customer Appreciation event at George Washington Carver Community Center.

Customers were able to meet with a number of vendors at the event that included PCCEO Head Start/Early Head Start, The City of Peoria, and the Peoria Area Food Bank. Each customer left with energy saving LED light bulbs and other energy saving items.
