Ameren Missouri has closed on the acquisition of the company's first wind energy center, a 400MW project in northeast Missouri, USA.
The purchase of the High Prairie Renewable Energy Center in Adair and Schuyler counties is the first of two planned investments in Missouri-based wind generation, which will add 700MW of clean energy to the grid. The company recently released plans to invest approximately $4.5 billion in 3,100 MW of renewable generation by 2030. This includes $1.2 billion for the planned acquisitions of this energy center and a 300 MW energy center in Atchison County, Missouri. The wind facility was constructed by an affiliate of Terra-Gen and consists of 175 wind turbines.
