Power Plant Retirements

By mid-2016, AEP will have retired approximately 6,500 megawatts (MW) of coal-fired generating capacity as part of AEP's plan for complying with the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards for existing power plants that were approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in December 2011. AEP developed formal plans to decommission that capacity in a responsible manner that will safeguard the local environment and assure the safety and security of the local community and our neighbors for years to come.
