ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Utility company Ameren is preparing to announce plans for a solar energy demonstration project for St. Louis and Springfield, Ill.
The St. Louis-based utility currently has no solar projects, although it is working with wind and other fossil fuel alternatives.
Ameren's president, Thomas Voss, and others were scheduled to outline the plan at a news conference at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at the company's downtown St. Louis headquarters.
