The University awarded a contract for Delivery of Natural Gas and Electricity to Peoria to Ameren Illinois Company, Collinsville, IL, for an estimated $550,000.
The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria must have natural gas and electricity delivered to the campus in order to operate the facility. Currently, Ameren Illinois Company is not supplying natural gas and electricity, but rather is the distributor for the supplier for gas and electricity. The supplier of the natural gas and electricity does not own the distribution/delivery lines that the gas and electricity is delivered through to the campus, but rather these are owned by Ameren Illinois Company.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the public utility service is regulated.
