Ameren Missouri, a subsidiary of Ameren Corporation, announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire, after construction, a third wind generation facility in Missouri. The facility, developed by Tradewind Energy, an Enel Green Power company, will be located in Atchison County. When operational in 2020, the 300 MW wind facility will power 90,000 homes. It will be located near the town of Tarkio and 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.

Before construction of the third facility, Ameren Missouri must obtain the Missouri Public Service Commission's review and approval. All three planned facilities remain subject to a number of conditions including obtaining timely and acceptable transmission interconnection agreements from the applicable regional transmission organizations.

This agreement is an important step in implementing Ameren Missouri's Integrated Resource Plan, a 20-year outlook that supports cleaner energy in the state. In the past eight months, Ameren Missouri has entered into commitments to acquire up to 857 MW of clean, renewable wind energy representing an investment of approximately USD 1.4 billion.
