Ameren Missouri, a subsidiary of Ameren Corporation announced that it has mutually agreed with EDF Renewables Inc to terminate the development of an up-to 157 MW wind facility in Atchison County, Missouri. Mr Michael Moehn, chairman and president of Ameren Missouri said that "Significant upgrades would have been required on the transmission system to accommodate this project, leading to unacceptably high costs. While we're focused on incorporating more renewable energy, we also have to be good financial stewards for our customers, who trust us to provide safe, reliable energy while keeping rates stable and predictable. While it is disappointing we will not be moving forward with this project, we remain focused on seeing our other, larger projects through to the finish line."

Ameren Missouri remains strongly committed to meeting its goal of owning at least 700 MW of new wind generation by the end of 2020 with two Missouri-based projects under agreement to build:

Mr Moehn said Ameren Missouri is pleased to have received the third and final phase of the expected regional transmission organization interconnection costs for both projects, which were in-line with expectations. Final interconnection agreements are expected this Fall.
