american electric power (AEP) Key Developments

American Electric Power to Shut Down Seven Coal-Fired Power Plants, by the End of May 2015

American Electric Power announced that By the end of May 2015, the company will shut down seven coal-fired power plants. Two others are in the process of being converted to run on natural gas. The actions are a follow-through on plans announced in 2011 and then updated since then, necessitated in part by federal clean-air rules. In Ohio, the closings affect one big plant and a small one: the Muskingum River plant in Washington County, with 1,440 megawatts of capacity, and the Picway plant south of Columbus, with 100 megawatts. AEP has issued layoff notices for more than 250 employees at six of the plants. The remaining workers will be offered severance packages, and many of those employees are retirement age. Outside of Ohio, the following AEP sites will close by the end of May: the Sporn, Kammer and Kanawha River plants in West Virginia, the Tanners Creek plant in Indiana and the Glen Lyn plant in Virginia. In addition, two plants Big Sandy in Kentucky and Clinch River in Virginia are shutting down their coal-burning systems and converting them to burn natural gas. The nine plants have about 6,000 megawatts of capacity, which is 16% of AEP's total capacity.

American Electric Power Readies to Close Six Coal-Fired Plants in Four States on May 31, 2015

American Electric Power is readying to shut down six coal-fired power plants in four states on May 31, 2015 to comply with federal emissions standards. AEP gave notices of the closures to the workers and to the states at the Philip Sporn, the Muskingum River Plant in Ohio, Kammer and Kanawha Valley plants in West Virginia, the Tanners Creek Plant in Indiana and the Glen Lyn Plant in Virginia. The notices are needed by the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.
