Ameren Missouri, an energy solutions company, recently announced plans to develop a new 91-acre solar energy facility in Missouri. It will include thousands of solar panels and is expected to generate 12,000 megawatt hours per year, the equivalent of the total energy needs of nearly 1,100 average residential homes.
“Substantial increases in renewable energy generation are at the core of our transformational change toward Ameren’s net-zero carbon emissions,” said Marty Lyons, Ameren Missouri Chairman. “This new solar facility, the largest in Ameren Missouri history, is one of many projects we’re pursuing to deliver more clean energy while maintaining the reliability and affordability our customers have come to expect.”
The announcement comes after Ameren Missouri revealed plans to operate with net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
