Farmers and landowners fought this transmission line for a long time. Ameren worked through the process in a professional and consistent manner and ultimately won their confidence.

"The speed and efficiency with which this line was developed and constructed can be attributed to the ongoing collaboration and strong communication efforts we had with landowners, community representatives and Northeast Missouri Electric Power Cooperative," said Shawn E. Schukar, chairman and president of ATXI. "Because of our focus on communication, our contract partners were able to quickly move forward on key construction phases, meet crucial deadlines and now energize this important infrastructure project that bolsters the energy grid."

Congratulations Ameren. Big transmission, while increasingly challenging to route and permit, remains a critical part of our safe, reliable, affordable and clean energy future.

Great to see a positive example of navigating these transmission challenges, especially as new infrastructure (rather than putting bandaids on existing grid equipment) will be critical as the grid decarbonizes and digitalizes.
