In order to turn on your electricity with Ameren you may be required to produce a copy of your Passport and ID because you do not have a U.S. Social Security number or you do not have a verifiable credit history.
As of July, 2019, Ameren no longer accepts photocopies certified by an attorney. They have moved to a digital portal called NetVerify. You will upload digital copies of your identification documents and a picture of yourself, and that will satisfy their requirements.
Student Legal Service can make digital photocopies of your documents if you desire. Please fill out a "General" intake form and submit it. This does not require an appointment, but will be processed on a walk-in basis.
