American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP) today completed the sale of AEP’s 330-megawatt (MW) share of the Zimmer Plant to Dynegy and the purchase of Dynegy’s 312-MW share of Conesville Plant.
The transaction has no material impact on AEP earnings.
AEP already operates Conesville Plant and Dynegy operates Zimmer Plant so there will be no employment impact from the transaction.

AEP’s other competitive generation assets in Ohio include 595 MW of Cardinal Plant, 603 MW of Stuart Plant and the 48 MW Racine Plant. Stuart Plant is expected to be retired by June 1, 2018.
