Power your Business with Renewable Energy

Get in on the ground floor of a simple way to power your business with renewable energy.

Ameren Missouri will build renewable energy facilities on the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) grid to match demand from subscribing customers. Through a subscription, you can directly support adding renewable energy to the grid and receive Renewable Energy Credits (RECS).

Predictable Pricing

Renewable Solutions ensures price certainty with no market risk. Credits are calculated by multiplying the total amount of renewable energy generated by the facility (measured in kWh) by a known rate. Charges are calculated by multiplying your portion of the renewable resource (in kW) by a separate known rate. Read more about the proposed rules of the program, credits and charges.

Simple, Easy Payments

Renewable energy costs will appear on your standard monthly electric bill as two line items: the charge and the credit. Your bundled Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) will be tabulated monthly and retired on your behalf semi-annually.

No Capital Investment

Since Ameren Missouri is building the renewable energy infrastructure, customers will not have to pay large, upfront capital costs. We will handle all negotiations, operations, maintenance, and administrative work.

Keep Your Clean Commitment

Subscribing to Renewable Solutions is an easy way to keep your commitment to reducing your carbon footprint and meeting your sustainability goals by using clean energy.

The Renewable Solutions program was filed for approval with the Missouri Public Service Commission in December, 2021. The process could take up to nine months and will be open for enrollment after approval.
