Ameren Corporation (NYSE: AEE) has received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to divest its merchant generation business, Ameren Energy Resources Company (AER), to an affiliate of Dynegy Inc. (NYSE: DYN).

FERC also approved the transfer of the Elgin, Grand Tower and Gibson City merchant gas-fired energy centers in Illinois, which were not part of the Dynegy transaction, from Ameren Energy Generating Company (Genco) to AmerenEnergy Medina Valley Cogen, LLC (Medina Valley). Following this approval, Medina Valley acquired these energy centers in accordance with the previously announced asset purchase agreement between Medina Valley and Genco.

In addition, Medina Valley has entered into an agreement to sell the Elgin, Gibson City and Grand Tower gas-fired energy centers to a special purpose entity affiliated with and formed by Rockland Capital, a private equity firm with offices in Houston and New York. The closing is expected to occur by year-end 2013.
