Missouri Solar Energy Activity


As of August 2023, Missouri has 25 solar farms already operating with a current capacity of 90.9 MW and a current electricity generation of 10,600 MWh. Missouri has a significant amount of operating solar farms compared to the other states in the US, and it has a development of solar farms with 2 solar farms under construction of 8 MW capacity total, 1 planned solar farms with 10 MW1 capacity, as well as 25 Utility-Scale Queued projects and 18 site control projects. Overall, if all planned and under construction farms go into operating status, Missouri will expand its capacity by 18 MW. That’s a 24% growth in capacity for the state. In Missouri, the average solar farm size is 24 acres producing 3.5 MW of electricity under ideal conditions. So a solar farm in Missouri needs an average of 6.8 acres per MW of capacity.
