Bradley Jones, manager of the Glen Lyn Power Plant in Giles County, has replaced Frank Simms who retired July 31 as manager of hydro operations for American Electric Power and Appalachian Power. Neil Holthouser, who has served as director of planning and community development for Franklin County for seven years, has been named to lead Appalachian's shoreline management team. Jones will oversee Appalachian's hydroelectric projects in Virginia and West Virginia as well as all other hydro generation throughout the AEP system. As manager of Glen Lyn since 2003, he will continue to oversee the Glen Lyn plant retirement while he takes on the hydro leadership. Glen Lyn officially ceased generation May 31 as part of the company's compliance with federal environmental requirements. Later this month, Holthouser will become administrator of Appalachian's shoreline management plan replacing Patricia Dade, who left in July to pursue outside business interests. Holthouser has 15 years of experience in urban planning with a specialization in comprehensive planning, community development and design review. Holthouser and his team will be Appalachian's primary contact with property owners and contractors for construction and other shoreline work within the project's boundaries.

the West Virginia Public Service Commission Requests Appalachian Power to Maintain Three Closed Coal-Fired Power Plants for at Least Four Years

The West Virginia Public Service Commission is requesting Appalachian Power to maintain three closed coal-fired power plants for at least four years after the PSC felt the plants should not be closed permanently. The affected plants are the Kanawha River Plant is Glasgow, the Sporn plant in Mason County and the Glen Lyn plant in Glen Lyn, Va., though the West Virginia PSC does not have jurisdiction in Virginia. The plants closed at the end of May to comply with new federal clean air regulations. In May, the PSC asked Appalachian Power to show why the former power plants had to close and why those plants couldn't be converted to natural gas. The PSC's request came less than four weeks before the plants were scheduled to close. The closures were public knowledge for well over a year. The PSC made its final order requesting the plants be maintained on July 7, 2015.
