Solar energy more likely than wind at Callaway plant

Solar energy is more likely to be developed at the Callaway Energy Center than wind turbines, an Ameren Missouri official said Tuesday.

Bill Barbieri, Ameren Missouri’s manager of renewable energy, said he and other officials intend to conduct more research on possible development of wind and solar power generation at the Callaway plant.

As part of its push for renewable energy, Barbieri said Ameren Missouri is considering possible use of all of its power plants for development of renewable energy such as wind or solar.

The combination of high capacity power lines near power generation plants and substantial property around each plant makes them ideal sites for alternative energy development. Ameren Missouri owns about 7,000 acres around the Callaway Energy Center. About 6,300 acres is now set aside as the Reform Conservation area.
