SunEdison is moving its headquarters and about 200 employees across the Missouri River into St. Louis County, signing an 11-year lease that means it probably won’t be following its solar operations to California anytime soon.

The move comes two months after the company sold off part of its legacy semiconductor business in an initial public offering as SunEdison Semiconductor Ltd. The two companies are offshoots of the former MEMC Electronic Materials, which has for decades been based in O’Fallon and only last year renamed itself after the solar panel business became increasingly important.

SunEdison’s solar headquarters are in Belmont, Calif., where its CEO and about 285 employees work.
