Focusing on a Clean Future
As customer energy demands continue to diversify and grow, energy providers and manufacturers must work together to meet those demands. Decarbonization, ESG and electrification are driving the adoption of renewables at a blistering pace. Finding the right partner to help grow your business is crucial.
A Solar Activity Hub
It's no coincidence that our service territory is a hub for solar activity. Not only are we investing heavily in solar but we're also proud to be home to industry leaders like Enel in Tulsa, Oklahoma, whose innovative production of solar panels and cells fuel our nation’s clean energy growth. Additionally, institutions like Ivy Tech, an Indiana community college known for its solar PV system design training program, offer cutting-edge solar education and training programs, ensuring a steady stream of skilled professionals. This unique ecosystem allows us to offer our clients unmatched access to expertise, resources, and talent, helping them navigate the solar landscape with confidence.
Ideal Region for Your Industry
AEP is at the forefront of the clean energy transition. We are investing $8.6 billion in renewables through 2027 and growing our renewable generation portfolio to 50% by 2030.
Proximity to several institutions recognized for education and training in the solar industry including Purdue University, University of Louisiana Lafayette, The Ohio State University, and Ivy Tech
Our service territory includes Oklahoma – an energy power with an expertise that extends beyond traditional oil and gas to include clean energy, CNG, geothermal, solar, wind and more. The state ranks as the third largest producer of both wind energy and natural gas. AEP-served Tulsa is one of the nation’s energy capitals with nearly 1,000 energy-related companies calling the region home. Tulsa’s Port of Catoosa is one of the largest, most inland ice-free river ports in the U.S.
High-Powered Hydrogen Growth
AEP is a driving force behind the success of the hydrogen revolution. Our 11-state service territory is home to three of the seven hydrogen hubs selected by the U.S. Department of Energy.
- The Appalachian hub (Ohio & West Virginia)
- The Gulf Coast hub (Texas)
- The Midwest hub (Indiana and Michigan)
These hubs will play a critical role in developing and deploying hydrogen technologies, creating jobs, and driving economic growth. Our abundant renewable energy and natural gas supply will drive down the cost of hydrogen and make it a more competitive energy source. There is also strong infrastructure in place, including a network of pipelines and storage facilities, that can be used to transport and store hydrogen.
Equipping the Energy Transition
AEP has the expertise you are looking for and the know-how to make your solar, wind or hydro project successful. We’re committed to this growing industry now more than ever and looking forward to working with like-minded partners.
