Aep Completes Sale of Racine Hydro Plant

American Electric Power (Nasdaq: AEP) today completed the sale of Racine Plant, a 48-megawatt (MW) hydroelectric facility in Racine, Ohio, from AEP Generation Resources, the company’s competitive generation affiliate, to Eagle Creek Renewable Energy. 

AEP announced Feb. 9, 2021, that it had reached an agreement to sell the plant. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved the transfer on Dec. 17. Due to the competitive nature of the transaction, the sale price will not be disclosed. 
The sale of Racine Hydro furthers AEP’s ongoing focus on its regulated business operations, infrastructure and energy innovations. With the completion of this transaction, AEP Generation Resources’ only remaining competitive facility is Cardinal Plant’s 595-MW Unit 1, which is scheduled for retirement in 2028.
