Review of AEP Ohio's Coal Units Environmental Compliance Plan


Synapse provided testimony on behalf of the Office of the Ohio Consumers' Counsel regarding AEP Ohio’s request to pass through to its customers the costs and revenues of 20 coal units. Customers would bear these costs until the scheduled retirement dates for the plants, which currently range from 2033 to 2051. Expert witness Sarah Jackson examined the utility's environmental compliance plan and assessed the related potential financial risks that the coal units posed to customers.
