Ameren Missouri, a subsidiary of Ameren Corp. and a supplier of electrical and gasoline service for central and japanese Missouri, intends to accumulate or construct roughly 550 MW of solar energy, persevering with the corporate’s deliberate addition of two,800 MW of recent renewable era by 2030.
Consisting of 4 tasks which are able to producing sufficient energy to provide greater than 95,000 average-sized residential properties, the amenities are focused for completion in levels between subsequent 12 months and 2026.
“These projects support our ongoing generation transformation toward more clean energy while maintaining the reliability, resiliency and affordability our customers expect,” says Mark Birk, chairman and president of Ameren Missouri. “In addition, we are taking advantage of new federal incentives that will help us provide renewable energy to our customers at a lower cost.”
The tasks, so as of focused in-service date, embody:
- Cass County Solar, 150 MW, primarily based in Cass County, Ill., focused in-service date of 2024, to be acquired by Ameren Missouri from Savion.
- Vandalia Renewable Energy Center, 50 MW, primarily based in Vandalia, Miss., to be developed by Ameren Missouri, goal in-service date of 2025.
- Split Rail Solar, 300 MW, primarily based in Warren County, Miss., focused in-service date of 2026, to be acquired by Ameren Missouri from Invenergy.
- Bowling Green Renewable Energy Center, 50 MW, primarily based in Bowling Green, Miss., to be developed by Ameren Missouri, goal in-service date of 2026.
“Bringing new jobs and opportunities to these communities is an incredibly rewarding part of our work,” Birk says. “It’s part of the multiplier effect projects of this scale will have. Solar facilities do so much more than create energy. We’ve seen in other communities across the state that by their presence alone, they create interest and open career paths into entirely new fields.”
