Powers Solar Frames, LLC, of Phoenix, AZ. has been awarded the project to provide Solar Ground Mount Racking components for Ameren Missouri’s multi-million dollar, 6.1 MW Solar Energy facility on a 19 acre site adjacent to the utilities’ Belleau substation in St. Charles County. Pending final changes, the project will feature more than 20,000 solar panels, generating enough electricity to power some 650 average size homes in the St. Louis area.
Ameren Missouri, a St. Louis based corporation that is among the nation’s largest investor-owned electric and gas utilities, selected MC Industrial, an independent McCarthy company, to manage the design and construction of the state’s largest investor-owned solar energy center. Together, Ameren Missouri and MC Industrial awarded Powers Solar Frames the contract to provide the Ground Mount racking components for the project.
In discussing their involvement, Powers Steel & Wire, Vice President, John Powers said, “We are excited to have the opportunity to provide our Solar Frames for this significant project for the St. Louis region. We look forward to working with MC Industrial and Ameren Missouri, as the construction begins and the project comes to fruition.”
