City of Aledo named Finalist for Ameren Illinois' Energy Innovators Competition

The City of Aledo is a finalist in the first-ever Ameren Illinois Energy Innovators competition.  In its inaugural year, Energy Innovators is a competitive awards program that recognizes organizations for outstanding achievements in energy efficiency.   To be considered, projects or programs had to take place between June 1, 2017 and May 31, 2018.  The City of Aledo is a finalist for the Energy Savings category. 

Organizations are eligible to receive an award in one of three categories:

·        Energy Savings Projects – Energy efficiency projects that generated significant energy savings relative to the facility or business’s overall usage.

·        Innovative Projects – Energy efficiency projects that in some way utilized new or innovative technology.

·        Community Benefit – Projects or programs that increased energy efficiency engagement in underserved communities, created jobs or training opportunities in the energy efficiency industry, or helped expand or launch new energy efficiency businesses.

The top organization in each category will receive $1,000, and one overall winner will receive $10,000 towards an energy efficiency project.

“The Energy Savings category was very competitive in this year’s inaugural competition.  We had many great submissions, from municipalities to small businesses,” said Keith Martin, Director of Energy Efficiency Operations for Ameren Illinois.  “What they all shared, though, is a great story of how they lowered their energy usage and saved money through energy efficiency.

The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony being held December 5, 2018 at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield.
