The single-award time and material contract has a three-year period of performance and a total contract value of $55 million. The agreement covers work Leidos will perform to help business and residential customers save energy through Ameren Illinois's ActOnEnergy portfolio of energy efficiency solutions.
Since 2008, Leidos has implemented a range of energy efficiency programs for Ameren Illinois's commercial and industrial customers. Solutions introduced by Leidos include the creation of a program ally network of contractors who market and install energy efficient products and services and the development of incentive discount payment programs.
These initiatives and others have enabled Ameren Illinois customers to save more than 2,800 gigawatt hours of electricity and more than 27 million therms of natural gas—enough power to serve more than 90,000 homes for an entire year.
Under the contract, Leidos will add residential services to its business portfolio with special emphasis on providing rebates and incentives to assist Ameren Illinois's low and moderate income consumers.
Leidos's team of energy efficiency research analysts and marketing professionals are co-located with Ameren Illinois staff at the utility's Peoria, Ill., office.
