AEP's $4.5Bn Wind Project Wins Another Approval (Ind. Report)
AEP Corp,Invenergy
Date: 2018-06-22
In the Buckeye State, Columbus-based utility American Electric Power (AEP) is reporting its proposed $4.5 billion Wind Catcher Energy Connection project has landed required approvals from Louisiana and Arkansas -- two of the four states it will ultimately serve. Texas and Oklahoma have not yet approved the proposed 2,000-MW wind farm to be constructed in Texas and in Cimaroon County on the Oklahoma panhandle.

The project would be developed by Chicago-based Invenergy LLC and will incorporate about 800 wind turbines supplied by GE Renewable Energy. Invenergy would sell the farm upon completion, expected in in 2020. AEP's Southwestern Electric Power Co. will own 70 pct of the project and Public Service Company of Oklahoma will hold the remaining 30 pct. Southwestern Electric Power Co. says the project will save customers $4 billion over its 25-year life, compared to what it would cost to buy the power on the open market, noting no fuel costs, tax credit benefits and cost-efficient delivery thanks to the dedicated power line. It serves 231,000 customers in Louisiana. AEP serves 5.4 million customers in 11 states. It has 33,000 megawatts of energy generation capacity, including 4,200 megawatts of solar energy as well as 224,000 miles of distribution lines.
