Ameren Missouri To Invest $5 Billion To Improve Statewide Electrical Grid

Ameren Missouri is planning $5 billion worth of improvements to its energy grid, company officials announced Friday.

The Smart Energy Plan includes 2,000 electric projects to be completed during the next five years, including a new substation in Hazelwood and upgrades to the underground grid that serves downtown St. Louis. The utility also plans to spend $1 billion on wind energy in 2020.

“We’re modernizing this grid to benefit customers today as well as future generations to come,’’ Ameren President Michael Moehn said. “We’re engaging in over 2,000 projects, building a smarter, more reliable, cleaner energy grid.’’

The plan would be Ameren’s largest upgrade in its 100-year history, Moehn said.

1. Like any other business should. I don't know why they announced this or are they expecting pats ...

on the back or something? This is my utility. One of the only thing that they have done (and this was done in response to a MO ballot initiative) that a large % of renewable energy (15%) be either created and used in MO...legal issues still remain in the courts that this renewable energy can be purchased outside the boundaries of the state instead of developing the resource here in MO. Again, this energy initiative was one put forth by the voters of MO and when it passed, the legislation bypassed a portion of the ballot initiative by eliminating two critical paragraphs from the ballot initiative (that renewable energy be developed here in MO) prior to being used in MO.
