Ameren Missouri Announces Unaudited Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2017

Ameren Missouri announced unaudited earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. First quarter 2017 earnings were $5 million, compared to first quarter 2016 earnings of $14 million. The year-over-year earnings decrease reflected lower 2017 electric retail sales primarily driven by very mild winter temperatures, which reduced earnings by an estimated $9 million (and $18 million compared to normal temperatures), as well as higher depreciation expenses. These unfavorable factors were partially offset by lower other operations and maintenance expenses not subject to riders or regulatory tracking mechanisms.

Ameren Missouri Proposes Plan for Solar Panels At Lambert Airport

Ameren Missouri is taking off on a forward-thinking plan to increase the amount of solar energy available to customers. The company announced plans for a new solar generation facility to be built at St. Louis Lambert International Airport. Energy produced there would be available for its customers through the Community Solar Program. The plan calls for Ameren Missouri, a subsidiary of Ameren Corporation, to build up to a one megawatt facility at Lambert. Once the plan is approved by city officials and state regulators, Ameren Missouri customers can sign-up for blocks of solar generated energy. The airport is an ideal location for solar panels. There is an abundance of open land that would otherwise go unused. Panels would be positioned away from runways and out of the line-of-sight of pilots taking off or coming in for a landing.
