Ameren Missouri's Smart Energy Plan investments in Northeast Missouri benefit both customers and suppliers
Ameren Missouri has installed a new $17.1 million state-of-the-art substation in Brookfield, Missouri. One of the new 55-ton transformers, made by Hitachi ABB Power Grids, was delivered on March 3, 2021. Hitachi ABB is one of the many suppliers that has seen a demand for their products increase to support Ameren Missouri's Smart Energy Plan projects.
Here's how the new smart substation equipment works: If a problem is detected, the system will automatically transfer the energy flow and reduce outages from hours to seconds to keep the lights on for thousands of Brookfield area customers.
See how these energy grid investments are benefiting Ameren Missouri customers and helping suppliers create jobs.
The new Brookfield Substation will go into service at the end of 2021.
