Driving Economic Growth
  

While Ameren's safe, affordable energy powers people's lives, our company supports the region's economy, too. Ameren's economic development efforts in 2013 helped foster approximately $296 million in new corporate investment throughout Illinois and Missouri, resulting in the creation of 744 new jobs and retention of 246. We're proud to be one of the many businesses working hard to nurture stronger communities.

Project support facilitated by Ameren's Economic Development team and other departments was provided to LMV Automotive Systems in Liberty, Mo. This $42 million automotive parts facility created 156 new jobs in the community.
   

Beyond that core contribution is the money we spend on infrastructure improvements, tax payments, employee payrolls and supplies and services. All this direct spending brings direct and indirect benefits to thousands of businesses and people across our region.
