About Our Business

A Legacy of Reliable Power

In 2015 and 2016, AEP will retire approximately 6,500 megawatts (MW) of coal-fueled generating capacity as part of our plan for complying with the new federal Mercury Air Toxics Standards for existing power plants. For decades, these units have supplied reliable, affordable power to millions of customers, supported local economic growth, provided local and state tax revenue that supported education, public safety and other services, and provided well-paying jobs for thousands of people. We thank the leaders and citizens of these communities for the opportunity to live and grow with them.
