For attribution to: Michael Menne, Vice President, Environmental Services, Ameren Corporation

We need to study the proposed EPA rule in detail to see how it would affect our customers, system reliability, the environment and the local economy.  We will share our perspectives on the impact of this rule with key stakeholders once we complete our assessment.  Ameren remains focused on transitioning to a cleaner, more diverse energy portfolio in a responsible fashion. We look forward to working with pertinent federal and state officials and other key stakeholders to develop appropriate policies that support this approach.

It’s important to note that Ameren already has taken steps to transition, in a responsible way, to a cleaner, more diverse energy portfolio. Those steps include greater levels of renewable energy being added to our generation mix, including the largest investor-owned solar energy center in Missouri. We also will install additional clean air equipment and continue to invest in meaningful energy efficiency programs, as detailed on ActOnEnergy.com.
