Peoria, Ill., December 13, 2011 — Ameren Illinois is focusing on 2012 and beyond as it begins to fulfill its promise with the enactment of the Energy Infrastructure Modernization Act, formerly known as Senate Bill (SB) 1652.

To lead this effort, Ameren Illinois has named Michael L. Moehn, senior vice president of customer operations.

The Energy Infrastructure Modernization Act is a statewide commitment with a formula ratemaking approach that will create more than 2,400 jobs and require about $3 billion of investment over the next 10 years to modernize the state's electric system including the installation of smart grid.

Ameren Illinois is referring to implementing the new law as its Modernization Action Plan. The MAP will ensure a more secure and reliable delivery system, benefitting customers, co-workers, investors and the environment. MAP will serve as the blueprint that will guide Ameren Illinois through its 10-year infrastructure modernization.

Moehn will assume his new role on January 1, 2012. He will report to Cisel.

Moehn previously was senior vice president of corporate planning and business risk management since 2008. His responsibilities included corporate modeling, corporate project risk management, corporate strategic planning, pricing and analysis, merger and acquisition transactions and resource planning. Prior to assuming this position, he served as vice president of corporate planning since 2004.
