27 June 2022: EDF Renewables North America has agreed to sell the 270MWdc Huck Finn Solar Project to local utility Ameren Missouri for an undisclosed amount.

Ameren Missouri, a subsidiary of Ameren Corporation, will acquire the project following its development and construction by EDF, which said, when built, the project will generate more than 25 times the amount of energy of Missouri’s largest existing solar facility.

Once operational in late 2024, the project is expected to generate more than US$14 million in revenue for the local communities in both Audrain and Ralls Counties.

This special webinar will look at one of the most important changes impacting PV manufacturing today; how to establish and sustain new facilities around the world. For more than two decades, policy-makers have grappled with the challenges of nurturing domestic manufacturing sectors. Many countries have tried to create domestic sectors: Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Europe and the U.S. But success stories have been rare. Mistakes seem to be repeated. And all the while, Chinese dominance of the industry has only increased. However, in the past 2-3 years, new drivers have emerged that suggest the dream of a global PV manufacturing ecosystem could be a reality. Join us as we shed light on this.
