Ameren Missouri has filed plans with the Missouri Public Service Commission (MoPSC) to build three solar-plus-storage facilities across Missouri, expected to be completed next year.
“These non-traditional solutions are expected to benefit customers by increasing reliability, growing the amount of renewable energy generation on the grid, and investing in the communities we call home,” said Michael Moehn, chairman and president of Ameren Missouri.
Ameren Missouri is investing approximately $68 million in these solar-plus-storage facilities as part of the company’s Smart Energy Plan, which includes thousands of electric projects designed to create a smarter, stronger, more reliable energy grid and introduce new sources of renewable energy, all while keeping rates stable and predictable.
The solar-plus-storage projects will be located in the communities of Green City, Richwoods and Utica. Each will have 10 MW of solar.
“This solution wasn’t available to us just two years ago,” said Kevin Anders, vice president of distribution operations and technical services. “Solar and storage technology has made significant strides in the past several years. Prices continue to decline, making them an attractive, affordable option for the communities we serve.”
