While we generate power, we’re also working to conserve our natural resources

At AEP, we have a long history of working with governments, conservation organizations and other utilities to reclaim land, restore wildlife habitats and offset greenhouse gas emissions in areas we've impacted through mining. We’re to share these reclaimed areas with you for recreation and enjoyment.
