In addition, they will also be upgrading natural gas meters at the customers' properties, there will be no natural gas service interruption.
Ameren or their installation contractor Donco, will be making the meter upgrades, normally on Monday-Friday during regular business hours.
All installers will have Ameren ID badges and will knock on your door to let you know they're on site. As always, residents should look for such identification and be cautious about opening the door to anyone claiming to be from Ameren but unable to show ID.
You don't need to be present as long as the installers have clear and safe access to your meters. If you are not present, a door hanger will be left to let you know if the upgrade was completed. This should only take about 10-15 minutes. Reminder post cards are to be mailed about three to four weeks before Ameren starts upgrades. For more information contact Ameren at 1-800-755-5000.
