Ameren's Solar Project Equipment

 

Equipment Installment Specifications
Monocrystalline
A common solar technology used primarily in small scale installations.

With a total capacity of 32.56 kW DC, 176 Suntech modules, rated at 185 watts/module and covering an area approximately 3,800 sq. ft., are installed and produce energy on Ameren's west building.
Polycrystalline
The most commonly used type of solar technology for small scale installations.

With a total capacity of 32.76 kW DC, 156 Suntech modules, rated at 210 watts/module and covering an area of about 3,900 sq. ft., are installed and produce energy on Ameren's west building.
Trackers
A tracking system has a significantly higher initial and maintenance cost than the fixed rooftop arrays, but trackers should be more efficient since the arrays move to “track” the sun’s path throughout the day.

With a capacity of 1.9 kW DC, 10 Suntech monocrystalline modules mounted on 2 tracking systems are installed and produce energy on Ameren's west building.

Ameren Solar Energy Project Partners
We utilized the expertise of several local designers, builders and contractors to make the Ameren Solar Energy Project a reality. This helped provide local jobs within our service area and establish successful working relationships.
  • Burns & McDonnell, a global engineering firm with offices in Chesterfield, Mo., designed the solar demonstration project.
  • Cooper Bussmann, from Ellisville, Mo., and Cooper B-Line, from Highland, Ill., contributed to the project.
  • Sachs Electric Company, an employee-owned electrical, communications and instrumentation contractor headquartered in Fenton, Mo., served as the prime contractor.
  • In addition, many Ameren employees contributed to the solar project.
