AEP To Pursue ‘Reregulation' After FERC Ruling Overrides Ohio Regulators, Halts PPAs

AEP Ohio announced on Thursday it will pursue energy reregulation following a move by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to block a pair of controversial Power Purchase Agreements.

FERC's rulings, issued late Wednesday, essentially halt PPAs from AEP and FirstEnergy - the same controversial agreements that won approval in March from the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. (See Gongwer Ohio Report, March 31, 2016)
