June 27 (Renewables Now) - Ameren Missouri, an electric and gas service provider owned by Ameren Corp (NYSE:AEE), has agreed to buy a 200-MW solar power plant in the central region of its home state for an undisclosed sum.

Specifically, the company plans to acquire the Huck Finn solar project pursuant to a build-transfer deal with EDF Renewables.

The project will be implemented on the border of Missouri's Audrain and Ralls counties. It is expected to create over 250 construction jobs and, with timely regulatory clearance, could start commercial operations as soon as 2024.

Huck Finn’s future output is estimated to be enough to supply about 40,000 homes. According to the announcement, the project is designed to generate over 25 times the amount of energy of Missouri's largest existing solar power station.

Ameren Missouri intends to add 2,800 MW of renewables by 2030. Since 2019, it has put in service a total of nine solar parks with a combined capacity of over 360 MW.
