WESTERN EGYPTIAN ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY COUNCIL - Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) open to applications starting October 2, 2023.  Please see flyer for details.

Homefield Energy Opt-Out Notification Letters were mailed out 10-13-23 to Pinckneyville residents offering them the opportunity to select Homefield Energy as their electric supply provider through June 2024.  This letter is not from the City of Pinckneyville.  Homefield Energy was selected by the City of Pinckneyville to provide competitive rates to its residents, but YOU have the option to select who will be your electric supplier.  Ameren will still bill you, but your supplier will be whoever you choose.  Ameren's rates fluctuate throughout the year, and Homefield Energy will lock in your rate for the period on the notice.  If you wish to choose Homefield Energy, you do not need to do anything with the YELLOW card enclosed with the letter.  If you wish to Opt-Out from Homefield Energy, and choose to use whoever has been providing your electric supply in the past, then you need to complete and return the YELLOW Opt-Out Card.  You can find who your current electric supplier is by looking at your Ameren bill in the Electric Supply section, and it will either say Ameren or whatever company you have chosen.  For more information, please read the attached flyer.

Missing Utility Bill?  We have been getting lots of calls with customers not getting their utility bills. Just a reminder, bills are always due on the 5th of the month. You can also access your bills through our online bill payment service called PSN.  See the website for links.

Public Service Announcement:

  • Temperatures are forecasted to be below freezing over the next couple weeks.  Prevent frozen pipes by disconnecting hoses from outdoor faucets, keep garage doors closed if there are water lines inside, open cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around plumbing, let indoor faucets drip slowly to keep water moving through the pipes.  Please be aware you may receive a courtesy service call, as this can show up on our daily "potential leak list", so you may still be contacted to verify your usage to make sure you have been letting your faucet or to indicate a potential leak in your water lines. 
  • Have emergency supplies for your home and car, make sure smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are in working order, replenish fuel for your car and heating sources.  Properly ventilate emergency heat sources and keep generators at least 20 feet from your home.  Check on neighbors and family, have multiple ways to receive weather warnings, and bring pets indoors and ensure they have plenty of water.
  • When travelling, clean off your windshields before driving, drive slowly and don’t use cruise control, leave extra distance between vehicles and snow plows.  Dress in layers, wear proper winter footwear with rubber treads and take slow, short steps to prevent falling.  Treat walking paths, limit outdoor exposure, and take breaks when shoveling.
