JEFFERSON CITY – Ameren Missouri said that several thousand jobs will be created as part of an effort to improve infrastructure, the company said. said these jobs are the result of about 2,000 planned projects aimed at a smarter network and more reliable energy. They did not give a specific number of expected jobs.
Along with the creation of jobs for which Amenren said that some people are already being trained, the plan will also focus on sustainability. Customer prices will not be able to increase until April 2020, after which the interest rate cap will be set, according to Ameren.
"This plan will have much greater stability and predictability than it once existed, because there were no restrictions previously," said Warren Wood, vice president of foreign affairs and communications.
This plan stems from the Senate's constructive energy legislation in Missouri, Bill 564, which was passed in 201
A public stakeholder meeting will be held on March 4 at 5:30 pm at the Millbottom event in Jefferson City. Customers can ask questions about the plan, as well as provide feedback that, according to Ameryn, can be used to correct future projects.
