Another Chamber Benefit: Saving You Money

Want to save money on your electric bill? Want deeply discounted and free Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs? The Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce is working for you! If you are a small business (DS-2) electric customer with Ameren Illinois Utilities, read on!

Act On Energy® is a service of Ameren Illinois Utilities that provides energy saving resources and incentive programs. Act On Energy has reduced the price of most of its already discounted products found at their Small Business Online Store by 50%! Not only are small businesses eligible to purchase CFLs starting at 50 cents, Act On Energy has also continued to offer FREE shipping on all purchases. If that isn’t enough, every small business is eligible for 3 CFLs FREE! No purchase is necessary to receive this free offer, but businesses must be an Ameren Illinois Utilities Delivery Service Rate DS-2 to purchase products or receive this free offer.

This offer is being brought to your attention because you are a valued member of the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce. By purchasing products from this online store and using the promo code pekin you will receive an additional 1% discount during checkout. The code should be entered on the payment screen during checkout. Pre-discount order totals must equal at least 50 cents. Free shipping will be applied to all orders, and customers may add one of two free CFL kits to their order.

If a small business replaces just 10 incandescent bulbs with 10 CFLs (a $5 investment) they will save about $170 annually in energy costs annually. Pricing on LED exit sings, LED exit sign bulbs, and wall mount sensors that automatically turns off the lights in unoccupied rooms have also been reduced by 50%. LED exit signs that can save a business over $60 in energy costs can now be purchased for just $6.88 - and you’ll get FREE shipping! This investment in energy-efficient equipment will pay for itself in just over a month. The great news is the fact that businesses will save over $60 this year and every year there after by installing this LED exit sign.

To receive your 3 free CFLs, visit the Small Business Online Store at and click on the free CFL 3-pack banner or the link on the left hand navigation bar. Customers can choose from two different 3-pack options, which will be sent to them free of charge as long as they agree to install the CFLs before April 30, 2010.

The reduced pricing, 3 free CLFs and free shipping are a limited time offer through March 31, 2010, and you must be an electric Delivery Service Rate DS-2 customer. Refer to the Electric Service Billing Detail on your most recent Ameren monthly bill to determine if you are a DS-2 customer.
