AEP Energy’s Renewable Energy by the Numbers

AEP Energy is committed to supporting renewable energy and making it easy for our customers to go green. We’re proud that an increasing number of customers are enrolling in renewable energy plans.

Stats by the numbers

  • In 2015, 2% of customers enrolled in a renewable energy plan as compared to 20% of customers today.
  • In 2020, we served approximately 891M kilowatt hours (kWhs) of renewable energy to our residential customers and over 1B kWhs of renewable energy to our commercial customers for a total of approximately 2B kWhs of renewable energy.

The impact those numbers make

According to the U.S. EPA Greenhouse Gases Equivalencies Calculator, that’s approximately the same as avoiding emissions from:

  • 3.5 billion miles driven by an average passenger car
  • 1.6 million gallons of gasoline consumed
  • 18 billion smart phones charged

What do our customers have to say?

  • “I am so happy to be able to have AEP Energy as my energy company because of the positive environmental and political impact in producing RECs for my state.” – Frank C., Mt. Pleasant PA
  • “AEP Energy is a very earth-friendly and customer-supportive resource I highly recommend to anyone looking to make some difference toward reducing greenhouse gas and the global warming phenomenon. We need to know how to live with the earth and not destroying it through responsible use of energy resources. AEP Energy gives me that opportunity with its variety and price range. I renewed because I believe it is a responsible company, reliable and eco-friendly.” – David W., Altoona PA
  • “I was very happy to learn that AEP Energy has a 100% green energy option at a VERY competitive rate. In fact, my rate for the coming year was lower than the previous year. I know others who are looking for a green energy option and I am going to be sure they check out AEP Energy! Everyone should sign up for 100% green energy.” – Peggy B., Camden OH
