Missouri utility plans three solar-plus-storage projects

first_imgMissouri utility plans three solar-plus-storage projects FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享St. Louis Post-Dispatch:Ameren aims to build the three largest investor-owned utility solar installations in the state, the electric utility said Tuesday, unveiling a plan to combine the projects with battery storage technology to improve reliability for local customers.The St. Louis-based electric monopoly announced that it had filed plans for the Solar-Plus-Storage installations with state regulators earlier Tuesday. If approved, the company said it hopes to have the projects — which would cost about $68 million, combined — in operation by the end of 2020.The proposed installations target small, rural communities, including Green City and Utica in northern Missouri, and Richwoods, about an hour southwest of St. Louis. Each of the communities are located on parts of the grid where transmission is vulnerable to prolonged power outages, Ameren officials said.At 10 megawatts apiece, Ameren said the projects would be the largest investor-owned solar facilities in Missouri. Combined, the facilities would be capable of meeting the power demands of roughly 10,000 customers, the company said. Fully charged, the accompanying battery system would be able to power 2,000 to 3,000 homes for about four hours at peak usage — like on a hot summer day, with air conditioners blasting. In less extreme conditions — say, on a day with temperatures in the 70s — the battery power could last for twice as long, said Kevin Anders, Ameren’s vice president of operations and technical services.More: Ameren seeks to add three ‘solar-plus-storage’ facilities in Missourilast_img read more
