[FORM OF REVERSE OF BOND]

This Mortgage Bond is one of a duly authorized issue of Mortgage Bonds of the Company (the “Mortgage Bonds”) in unlimited aggregate principal amount, of the series hereinafter specified, all issued and to be issued under and equally secured by the General Mortgage Indenture and Deed of Trust (as amended and supplemented, the “Indenture”), dated as of November 1, 1992, executed by the Company (as successor to Illinois Power Company) to The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as successor trustee to Harris Trust and Savings Bank (the “Trustee”) to which Indenture reference is hereby made for a description of the properties mortgaged and pledged, the nature and extent of the security, the rights of registered owners of the Mortgage Bonds and of the Trustee in respect thereof, and the terms and conditions upon which the Mortgage Bonds are, and are to be, secured. The Mortgage Bonds may be issued in series, for various principal sums, may mature at different times, may bear interest at different rates and may otherwise vary as provided in the Indenture. This Mortgage Bond is one of a series designated as the Series II Mortgage Bonds of the Company, unlimited in aggregate principal amount, issued under and secured by the Indenture and described in the Supplemental Indenture dated as of December 1, 2015 (the “Supplemental Indenture of December 1, 2015” ), between the Company and the Trustee, supplemental to the Indenture.

This Series II Mortgage Bond is subject to redemption in accordance with the terms of Article II of the Supplemental Indenture of December 1, 2015.

This Mortgage Bond shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, except to the extent that the law of any other jurisdiction shall be mandatorily applicable.

In case an Event of Default, as defined in the Indenture, shall occur, the principal of all Mortgage Bonds at any such time outstanding under the Indenture may be declared or may become due and payable, upon the conditions and in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture. The Indenture provides that such declaration may be rescinded under certain circumstances.

ARTICLE II

REDEMPTION

Section 1. The Series II Mortgage Bonds are not redeemable except on the date, in the principal amount and for the redemption price that correspond to the redemption date for, the principal amount to be redeemed of, and the redemption price for, the Senior Notes, and except as set forth in Section 2 of this Article.

In the event that the Company redeems any Senior Notes prior to maturity in accordance with the provisions of the Senior Note Indenture, the Senior Note Trustee shall on the same date deliver to the Company the Series II Mortgage Bonds in principal amount corresponding to the Senior Notes so redeemed, as provided in Section 4.08 of the Senior Note Indenture. The Company agrees to give the Trustee notice of any such redemption of the Senior Notes on or before the date fixed for any such redemption.

Section 2. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under the Senior Note Indenture (as defined therein) and the acceleration of the Senior Notes, the Series II Mortgage Bonds shall be redeemable in whole upon receipt by the Trustee (with a copy to the Company) of a written demand (hereinafter called a “II Redemption Demand”) from the Senior Note Trustee stating that there has occurred under the Senior Note Indenture both an Event of Default and a declaration of acceleration of payment of principal, accrued interest and premium, if any, on the Senior Notes specifying the last date to which interest on such Senior Notes has been paid (such date being hereinafter referred to as the “II Initial Interest Accrual Date”) and demanding redemption of the Series II Mortgage Bonds. The Company waives any right it may have to prior notice of such redemption under the Indenture. Upon surrender of the Series II Mortgage Bonds by the Senior Note Trustee to the Trustee, the Series II Mortgage Bonds shall be redeemed at a redemption price equal to the principal amount thereof plus accrued interest thereon from the II Initial Interest Accrual Date to the redemption date; provided, however, that in the event of a rescission or annulment of acceleration of the Senior Notes pursuant to the last paragraph of Section 8.01(a) of the Senior Note Indenture, then any II Redemption Demand shall thereby be deemed to be rescinded by the Senior Note Trustee although no such rescission or annulment shall extend to or affect any subsequent default or impair any right consequent thereon.
