Renewable Solutions

Power your Business with Renewable Energy

Lead the way to a sustainable energy future by powering your business with renewable energy. We can help your business meet carbon reduction goals without any installation, capital investment, or vendors.

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 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).

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 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 by using clean energy.

Frequently Asked Questions

The developer has successfully completed over 5GW of solar and wind generation in the Missouri, Illinois, and Iowa region.
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.
The construction start date is dependent on regulatory approval. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, supply issues have increased the cost of shipping and raw materials, all of which has led to a price increase. To mitigate any future price increase and eliminate any price impacts to our customers, the completion date has been extended from year end 2023 to year end 2024.
Tree removal is expected to be very limited, as the equipment will be located in open agricultural areas.
We plan to improve biodiversity in the area through native wildflower plantings.
There are no minimum or maximum load levels that would trigger termination. However, if the customer ceases to be eligible for the program as defined in the tariff, their subscription would be terminated.
Both single axis trackers and bifacial panels will be used.
Scheduled maintenance will predominately occur during less optimal times, such as evening/overcast hours.
Yes; in this case, participation will be based on your net load.
The charge rate reflects the expected resource cost for the Phase 1 resource.
The cost increases over time to help minimize the bill increase subscribers experience in the first few years. A flat program charge rate would lead to very high premiums in the early years.
The pricing rate will stay the same throughout your subscription. The Renewable Solutions Program was designed so subscribers are not subject to market risk.
No, 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.
The Ameren Missouri team is targeting MPSC approval by May 2022.
