Solar energy more likely than wind at Callaway plant
Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Solar energy is more likely to be developed at the site of the Callaway nuclear facility 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 County plant, now renamed the Callaway Energy Center.
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.
