Schedule of Closures

AEP plans to retire several coal units by 2030 as part of its plans to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2045. These closures equate to thousands of megawatts of coal-fired generation affecting communities across our service territory.

Specifically, AEP retired nearly 13,000 MW of coal-fueled generation during the last decade and will retire approximately 5,300 MW of additional coal capacity this decade.
