Ameren Missouri providing Missourians with a smart, secure and stable energy future
The City of Ferguson, Missouri, is the latest community to benefit from Ameren Missouri's Smart Energy Plan. The $9.7 million investment will improve energy reliability for 3,500 customers in Ferguson that includes the Ferguson Fire Department, Central Elementary School, Ferguson City Police Jail and the local United States Postal Service. The upgraded substation is being built with smart technology that will more rapidly detect and isolate issues – speeding power restoration if a problem occurs, sometimes in seconds instead of hours.

Keeping our partners and suppliers local helps Missouri's economy grow and at the same time is modernizing the state's energy grid.
