Your thermostat already does a lot to keep you comfortable and conserve energy. But now Ameren Missouri Peak Time Savings Program is here to help your thermostat do even more. By understanding how your home uses energy, the weather in your area, and your unique comfort settings, Peak Time Savings uses its cutting-edge technology to create the most energy-efficient schedule for you and your family. Peak Time Savings easily fits your lifestyle to help you save the most while still keeping you comfortable.
About the Program
This season, the Ameren Missouri Peak Time Savings program is partnering with Google Nest to help reward you for using less energy when everyone else is using more. When you sign up, the Peak Time Savings Program uses Nest Rush Hour Rewards to automatically adjust the temperature during these peak periods, while keeping you in control. As a thank-you, the Ameren Missouri Peak Time Savings Program will reward you with a $50 sign-up bonus for participating and $25 annually.
Peak Time Savings Event
Peak Time Savings Events or "energy rush hours" will be implemented on days in the summer that create a heavier demand for energy. To ensure everyone's energy needs are met efficiently, we are offering Peak Time Savings Events to reduce demand where we can. These events will pre-cool your home using your comfort settings when energy demand is lowest and limit your air conditioning usage during the event. This helps you stay comfortable before, during and after the event while also conserving energy during peak times. You'll always be notified when an event is scheduled.
Some Peak Time Savings program participants may be invited to participate in Seasonal Savings as a part of the program offering. Seasonal Savings can give your Google Nest thermostat's temperature schedule a tune-up in the early summer and winter. By automatically making small changes, Seasonal Savings helps you use energy more efficiently. Seasonal Savings uses the temperature preferences your Google Nest thermostat learns to find ways to save energy without compromising comfort.
Effortless Comfort and Control
Our smart technology will automatically adjust your temperature for you based on learned preferences. This will keep you comfortable and save energy during peak times. Rest assured that you can still adjust the temperature in your home at any time.
Make a Difference and Save
The Ameren Missouri Peak Time Savings Program is an easy way to contribute to a smart energy future, reduce your carbon footprint, and keep energy costs more affordable for everyone without ever lifting a finger!
How it Works:
- Make sure that your home's cooling system is operated by a qualifying Wi-Fi enabled smart thermostat. (See our FAQ page for a list of qualifying smart thermostats.) Don't have a smart thermostat? You can purchase one at the Ameren Missouri Online Store and install it.
- Complete your enrollment in the Peak Time Savings Program, powered by Nest Rush Hour Rewards, online. You may also call 1.877.215.5752 for additional questions.
- You will receive a confirmation email from the Peak Time Savings Program that you are officially enrolled. You'll receive $50 as a sign-up bonus if you did not receive the $50 sign-up bonus as an instant incentive when you purchased your qualifying thermostat at the Ameren Missouri Online Store.
- On certain dates that energy demand is exceedingly high - and only Monday through Friday during the months of May through September - your smart thermostat will automatically adjust to circulate the cooled air in your home. These times are called 'events' or 'energy rush hours' and will only last a few hours before your smart thermostat adjusts back to your preprogrammed cooling settings.
- Within a month of the anniversary of your enrollment, you'll receive $25.

When Seasonal Savings is adjusting temperatures, the changes it makes are subtle, just a fraction of a degree each day. Over the course of the entire tune-up period, the changes typically add up to about 1℉. The biggest temperature adjustments usually happen while you're asleep or away, so you may never even notice the changes made by Seasonal Savings.
Not all customers will be invited to participate in Seasonal Savings. In order to properly evaluate the effectiveness of the Peak Time Savings Program, we must reserve a group of customers (called a control group) to provide a comparison to other customers who are participating.
