Air Conditioner Giveaway Benefits Customers during Hot Summer Months
Ameren Missouri recently partnered with local agencies in its service territory to donate 500 ENERGY STAR® air conditioners that will assist with keeping customers safe and cool during the hot summer months. Now in its 12th year, the air conditioner giveaway kicked-off in the St. Louis metro region at an event with Cooldownstlouis.org, a long-time partner of Ameren Missouri. In addition to the air conditioners, a $25,000 donation was also made to Cooldownstlouis.org to provide program assistance.
Similar air conditioner giveaway events were held in Jefferson City, Park Hills and Cape Girardeau, where Ameren Missouri co-workers joined local agencies and community leaders to make the donation.
