Missouri utility regulators have approved construction plans for what will be Ameren’s largest-ever solar power farm in the state.
Ameren Missouri will build the new energy center in Montgomery County about 70 miles west of St. Louis. Once completed, the Montgomery County Solar Center will be the second community solar project serving the utility’s customers.
News reports indicate the site will be 91 acres and generate 6 MW at capacity. It will include thousands of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and could generate 12,000 MWh per year, according to reports. The Missouri Public Service Commission has given its go-ahead of the project.
