The Missouri Public Service Commission approved plans for Ameren to acquire what would be the company’s largest solar facility, a 200 MW project in central Missouri.

The Huck Finn Solar Project could be online by late 2024, according to an announcement made by Ameren Feb. 8. The facility would be acquired pursuant to a build-transfer agreement with EDF Renewables.

Huck Finn is designed to generate more than 25 times the amount of energy of Missouri’s largest existing solar facility. It is the latest project to be part of Ameren Missouri’s planned addition of 2,800 MW in new, clean renewable generation by 2030 and the ninth solar facility that the company has announced or put in service since 2019.

Terms of the agreement with EDF are confidential.
