EDF Renewables North America and Ameren Missouri, a subsidiary of Ameren Corporation (NYSE: AEE), announced today an agreement by which Ameren will acquire, after construction, the 157 megawatts (MW) Brickyard Hill wind project.

The facility, developed by EDF Renewables, and located in Atchison County is expected to create more than 280 jobs at peak construction along with millions of dollars injected into the local economy.  When operational in 2020, energy produced by the wind facility will power an estimated 47,000 homes. This new generation will help Ameren Missouri meet its goal of reducing carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050, based on 2005 levels.

“Our transition to cleaner forms of generation is building momentum,” said Michael Moehn, president of Ameren Missouri. “Investing in renewable generation, with the majority in Missouri, benefits our customers and the communities we serve by keeping rates steady and increasing economic activity.”

“EDF Renewables is pleased to partner with Ameren to help them execute on the transition to cleaner forms of generation,” remarked Dai Owen, senior director of power marketing at EDF Renewables.  “Wind power, the largest source of U.S. renewable electricity generating capacity, plays a key role at the center of our country’s energy transformation.  Ameren shares in our mission to deliver affordable, clean, reliable energy while at the same time growing the economy.”

The agreement is subject to conditions precedent, including approval from the Missouri Public Service Commission and obtaining a timely and acceptable transmission interconnection agreement from the Midcontinent Independent System Operator.
