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

Wind turbines in a field. Renewable Solutions is a subscription-based program that allows eligible businesses and organizations to replace up to 100% of their total energy use with renewable sources. 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).

  • Effortless Renewable Energy: No negotiations, maintenance, or administrative work.
  • Price Certainty: Rate lock with a long-term contract.
  • Investing in Local Clean Energy: Built, owned, and maintained locally.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility: An investment in the socioeconomic, workforce, and environmental welfare of communities where your customers live and work.

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 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ameren Missouri will own and operate the facility; we have a century-plus track record of successful and efficient generation facility operation.
The facility's capacity is 150 MW; it will be located in Southern Illinois.
We expect construction to begin in mid-2023 and the resource will be in service by the end of 2024.
There are no minimum or maximum load levels that would trigger termination. Customers that experience decreases in load may amend their RSP Agreement.
Yes; in this case, participation will be based on your net load.
The charge and credit rates will remain as defined in the tariff throughout your subscription. The Renewable Solutions Program was designed so subscribers are not subject to market price risk.
Only active Ameren Missouri business customer accounts are eligible to participate in the program.
The actual credit amounts will be based on the actual production of the resource on a monthly basis.
We will have region-specific vegetation plantings as well as pollinator-friendly plantings in areas that will not interfere with the generating panels but that will enhance the overall site and reduce future maintenance requirements.
During the initial site review process, consultants were contracted to perform a review of the proposed site regarding threatened and endangered species. This information was then used to design the solar facility to ensure it is not expected to materially affect local and migratory bird populations.
The project is designed and will be constructed in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations including but not limited to obtaining the necessary National Pollutant Discharge Elimination (NPDES) Permits prior to starting construction on-site. The design, development, implementation, and management will be in accordance with the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). We will develop, install, and monitor appropriate measures, including Best Management Practices (BMPs) during construction to prevent soil erosion and control sediment in accordance with the SWPPP and NPDES permits.
The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) was signed into law by President Biden on December 23, 2021 and took effect on June 21, 2022. The purpose of the Act is to ban imports of solar modules produced through forced labor practices in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China. With the implementation of the UFLPA, Ameren Missouri does not anticipate receiving solar panels from an importer that does not meet the UFLPA. Furthermore, it is not reasonable to expect that the Boomtown Project site would be able to receive delivery of modules that do not meet the UFLPA requirements as they would not be allowed through customs.
As part of the permitting process, we utilized a third party to develop and file a decommissioning plan with White County Illinois for the project. We expect the decommissioning plan to be updated as the project progresses and will work with the county to follow the local county requirements per the plan and would work to meet any additional requirements (local/state/federal) that might be imposed between now and decommissioning. Additionally, Ameren Missouri participates in specific programs through the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) regarding end-of-life decommissioning of solar facilities. EPRI continues to work in this area to ensure future decommissioning activities will include the potential for panel recycling, repurposing, etc. They are also researching disposal methods and the potential for hazardous material handling, if applicable. Ameren Missouri will continue to participate in the research within this field and utilize the knowledge gained as end-of-life gets closer and a detailed plan is developed for decommissioning.
