Ameren to Acquire Third Wind Farm in Missouri

By on May 14, 2019

From North American Wind Power: Ameren Missouri, a subsidiary of Ameren Corp., has entered into an agreement to acquire another Missouri wind farm.

The facility, developed by Tradewind Energy, an Enel Green Power company, will be located in Atchison County. Ameren Missouri plans to acquire the project upon completion of construction.

In the past eight months, Ameren Missouri has entered into agreements to acquire up to 857 MW of wind energy, representing an investment of approximately $1.4 billion. This latest deal is an important step in implementing Ameren Missouri’s integrated resource plan, a 20-year outlook that supports cleaner energy in the state.

“Adding homegrown renewable energy in Missouri benefits our state by integrating more renewable resources onto the grid and boosting local economies. We anticipate that over 300 high-quality jobs will be created while the project is being built,” says Michael Moehn, chairman and president of Ameren Missouri.

When operational in 2020, the 300 MW wind facility will power 90,000 homes. Located near the town of Tarkio, the project is scheduled to join two other planned Ameren Missouri-owned wind generation facilities; one will be in Atchison County near the town of Rock Port, and the other, the state’s largest, will stretch across Adair and Schuyler counties.
