Notice of Proposed Tariff Changes

Notice of Proposed Tariff Changes

Electric Service Schedule Ill. C. C. No. 1

To the Electric Patrons of

Ameren Illinois Company d/b/a Ameren Illinois:

Ameren Illinois (or the Company) hereby gives notice to the public that on April 15, 2016, it filed with the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC or Commission) proposed changes in its rates and charges for electric delivery services throughout its territory in Illinois pursuant to its Rider MAP-P, performance-based formula rate tariff, and updated its calculation of rates and charges per the proposed formula rate tariff. The changes are applicable to Ameren Illinois Rate Zones I, II and III, as more fully described below. The changes in rate schedule are proposed to take effect with the January 2017 billing period - after the Commission issues its final Order. The Commission has up to 240 days to complete this proceeding and issue its final Order.

This filing conforms to Illinois Public Acts 097-0616, 097-0646 and 098-0015 (the “Law”). These Public Acts also require the Company to spend $625 million in electric system modernization investments over a 10-year period. This modernization will benefit customers and create 450 new jobs during the peak program year. In addition, the Law requires the Company to meet various performance metrics intended to increase reliability, reduce outage durations and provide improved service to customers, or be subject to financial penalties.

The proposed updated formula rate revenue requirement results in an overall annual decrease of $14.4 million from the electric revenue requirement last ordered by the ICC in Docket No. 15-0305. The revenue requirement change by Rate Zone results in overall annual decreases of $3.9 million, $5.5 million, and $5.0 million for Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively, prior to implementing single tariff pricing measures among certain Rate Classes and Rate Zones. Proposed rates which will become effective beginning January 2017 due to this proceeding will generate revenues different from these revenue requirement targets due to movement towards rate uniformity among the Rate Classes and Rate Zones.

For the DS-1 Residential Delivery Service classification, the proposed decreases in electric delivery service and Electric Distribution Tax (EDT) cost recovery revenue are 2.8, 2.6 and 2.7 percent for Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively.

The rates for delivery service and EDT cost recovery constitute only a portion of the total bill of a customer currently taking bundled electric service from Ameren Illinois or taking supply service from a third-party supplier. The following compares the Company’s proposal to the bundled bill (delivery service charges that are in effect today and purchased power charges effective through May 2016) for residential customers:

1) For a residential customer using 5,000 kWh annually (or average of 417 kWh monthly), the effect of the delivery service bill changes being proposed by the Company produces an average monthly decrease of $0.94, $0.90 and $0.93 (or -1.5%,-1.5% and -1.5% monthly bill changes for bundled service) in Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively.

2) For a residential customer using 10,000 kWh annually (or average of 833 kWh monthly), the effect of the delivery service bill changes being proposed by the Company produce an average monthly decrease of $1.29 $1.21 and $1.28 (or -1.2%, -1.2% and -1.2% monthly bill changes for bundled service) in Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively.

3) For a residential customer using 18,000 kWh per year (or average of 1,500 kWh monthly), the effect of the delivery service bill changes being proposed by Company produce an average monthly decrease of $1.74, $1.61 and $1.72 (or -1.1%, -1.0%, and -1.1% monthly bill changes for bundled service) in Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively.

For non-residential customers, the proposed changes in electric delivery service and EDT cost recovery revenue for each of the three Rate Zones are as follows:

For DS-2 Small General Delivery Service classification, 3.9, 4.2 and 3.9 percent increases for Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively;

For DS-3 General Delivery Service classification, -7.2, and -6.8 percent changes for Rate Zones I, and II, respectively, with Rate Zone III negligibly impacted;

For DS-4 Large General Delivery Service classification, 11.1, 6.9 and 6.1 percent increases for Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively;

For DS-5 Lighting Service classification, -3.3, -6.5 and -6.0 percent changes for Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively; and

For DS-6 Temperature Sensitive Delivery Service classification (customers otherwise eligible for DS-3) -6.0, -5.6 and -5.7 percent changes for Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively;

For DS-6 Temperature Sensitive Delivery Service classification (customers otherwise eligible for DS-4) -5.7, -5.9 and -6.4 percent changes for Rate Zones I, II and III, respectively;

Customers should be advised that the Commission may alter or otherwise amend the rates or conditions of service after hearings are held pursuant to 83 Ill. Adm. Code Part 200, and may increase or decrease individual rates in amounts other than those requested by Ameren Illinois

Additionally, Ameren Illinois hereby gives notice to the public that it has filed with the Illinois Commerce Commission evidence (direct testimony) proposing the reduction of the Power Smart Pricing Charge from its current level of $0.08 per month, as referenced in Ameren Illinois’ Rider PSP Power Smart Pricing tariff, to $0.06 per month, to be contained in Ameren Illinois’ Supplemental Customer Charges tariff.

A copy of the proposed change in schedule(s) may be inspected at the Ameren Illinois offices at 300 Liberty Street, Peoria, Illinois or online at www.icc.illinois.gov/e-docket/.

All parties interested in this matter may obtain information with respect thereto either directly from Ameren Illinois or by addressing the Chief Clerk of the Illinois Commerce Commission, 527 East Capitol Avenue, Springfield, Illinois 62706.
