The largest-ever wind facility in Missouri is one step closer to producing renewable energy. This morning, the Missouri Public Service Commission voted unanimously to grant Ameren Missouri, a subsidiary of Ameren Corporation (NYSE: AEE), a certificate of convenience and necessity to acquire, after construction, a 400-megawatt facility that is expected to be located in Schuyler and Adair counties in northeast Missouri.

"This is an important next step in the process to develop more renewable energy in the state for the long-term benefit of our customers," said Michael Moehn, president of Ameren Missouri.

More milestones remain for the northeast Missouri facility, including obtaining a timely and acceptable Midcontinent Independent System Operator transmission interconnection agreement.

Ameren Missouri has been providing electric and gas service for more than 100 years, and the company's electric rates are among the lowest in the nation. Ameren Missouri's mission is to power the quality of life for its 1.2 million electric and 130,000 natural gas customers in central and eastern Missouri. The company's service area covers 64 counties and more than 500 communities, including the greater St. Louis area.
