AEP CEO Nick Akins tells Bloomberg TV that AEP is in the “final stages” of selling its Ohio generating units. He reports “robust interest” in the assets.
Meanwhile, he indicates the company is working with the Ohio legislature to “restructure” the Ohio electricity markets. To AEP, “restructuring” means having new AEP generation (solar, wind, natural gas) paid for by consumers via non-bypassable riders, even if the consumers buy their electricity from an AEP competitor.
