Charge for Less: An Analysis of Electricity Pricing for Electric Vehicles in Ameren Territory

The study found that Ameren's Power Smart Pricing program, a special electricity plan available to residential customers, could have helped electric vehicle (EV) drivers reduce the annual cost for charging their vehicles by 86 percent to 88 percent, compared with what they would have paid under Ameren's traditional electric prices. The potential savings ranged from $54 to $379 over the year studied, 2018.  

Unlike Ameren's standard power price, which changes infrequently, Power Smart Pricing charges a market-based price that can change hourly. Those prices often plummet during "off-peak" times (typically nights and weekends) when electricity demand is low, giving customers the chance to save money on their electric bills.
