At the Sept. 24th, Landlord Training on Energy Efficiency for Rental Property, we learned about:

  •         Energy Efficiency Rebates and Incentives from Ameren and Spire

 Ameren’s one-stop-shop service provides free assessments of the energy improvement needs of a whole building, then recommends improvements with the best ROI, provides cost estimates, lists rebates for both Ameren & Spire, can refer contractors, or even manage the improvements on your behalf.
