This is from AEP:
AEP owns and operates about 80 generating stations in the United States, with a capacity of more than 36,000 megawatts.
While the size of the fleet is significant, it's the efficiency - and the resulting reliability and operational economies - that has earned AEP its reputation as a pioneering, innovative, dependable, low-cost producer of power.

AEP believes strongly in the merits of fuel diversity in generating electricity, and its own generating fleet reflects that belief. Today, coal-fired plants account for 73 percent of AEP's generating capacity, while natural gas represents 16 percent and nuclear 8 percent. The remaining 3 percent comes from wind, hydro, pumped storage and other sources. AEP's recent investments in wind facilities have made it one of the nation's leaders in that renewable resource.
