How Quantum Weather Works
- Eventually, 100 weather monitoring stations will be located throughout Ameren Missouri's service area on existing Ameren Missouri poles. Currently, 50 monitoring stations are in place.
- The monitoring stations measure temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind speed, wind direction and rainfall.
- The monitoring stations are solar-powered with storage batteries for power during the night and on cloudy days.
- A computer model with specific analytical software cross-checks the weather data against the ground power lines and vegetation, producing highly detailed maps of weather activity.
- Ameren Missouri receives an information feed from SLU that includes alerts on destructive storms, and their possible impact in the Ameren Missouri service area.
- Based on this advance knowledge, Ameren Missouri can more rapidly dispatch crews to those neighborhoods, to prepare for or begin restoration work.
