    I signed up for Ameren's Pure Power program today, but it wasn't easy! The links on the website just kept taking me in circles and never sending me to the form they said to fill out - I even began to wonder if that was intentional! I finally called them, and they got me signed up. We are now purchasing renewable energy credits to offset our...

    I'm not going to get to this challenge of reducing paper by online billing and subscriptions. Darn. I actually wanted to dig into all the junk mail I receive at work and home and get off mailing lists. But this takes a lot of time!

    I didn't get around to this task during this EcoChallenge, but it's still on my list! Ameren Missouri offers heavily discounted smart thermostats in their online store, and you can sign up for $25 off your bill to participate in their summer demand response program called Peak Time Savings. Lowering our demand for electricity during times of...
