AEP Completes Sale of Cardinal Plant Unit 1

American Electric Power (Nasdaq: AEP) has completed the sale of the 595-megawatt (MW) Cardinal Plant Unit 1 in Brilliant, Ohio, from AEP Generation Resources, the company’s competitive generation affiliate, to Buckeye Power.

In March, AEP reached an agreement to sell Cardinal Plant Unit 1 and the company’s ownership stake in Cardinal Operating Company to Buckeye Power. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved the sale on May 19. AEP Generation Resources will purchase 100% of Unit 1’s output through a power purchase agreement through 2028. Cardinal Operating Company currently operates Cardinal Plant, and Buckeye already owns the other two units at the plant. Due to the competitive nature of the transaction, the sale price will not be disclosed.

The sale of Cardinal Plant Unit 1 completes AEP Generation Resources’ exit from competitive generation ownership in Ohio and reinforces AEP’s focus on its regulated business operations and infrastructure.
