Who Is AEP Energy?

In short, we are your trusted energy supplier. AEP Energy is a certified competitive retail supplier, and a subsidiary of our parent company, American Electric Power (AEP). Founded in 2002, AEP Energy has been helping customers save money and use energy more efficiently by doing the right thing every time, for every customer. 


Energy Expertise

As a subsidiary of American Electric Power, many of today’s AEP Energy leadership team came from our parent company, thus allowing us to have the resources of over 100 years of energy experience, knowledge, and expertise. Even though AEP Energy is a separate entity under the umbrella of AEP, the core values and ethics of our parent company flow into and are intertwined with our culture and how we run our business. These values come directly from the CEO of AEP, Nick Akins, and filter down into each of the 23 individual companies which make up American Electric Power.



AEP Energy strives to bring new energy options and efficiencies to our customers. We aim to remain competitive in our industry, not only with fair pricing, but also by providing excellent value for our customers. This includes renewable energy options, energy efficient products, reward dollar earnings to redeem in AEP Energy Reward Store for many of our residential and municipal aggregation customers and a comprehensive suite of products and services, such as Behind-The-Meter (BTM) Generation for our commercial and industrial friends. We also have an account management team and specific products designed especially for small businesses, all combined with different term lengths and options which allow customers to choose the right plan for them.


Energy Choice

Customers in deregulated states have the option to choose a supplier for their energy needs. When selecting an energy supplier, like AEP Energy, customers are free to shop for a supplier that offers the best price, length of contract, plan (including renewable energy options) and more with the same reliable energy flow to your home or business. Energy Choice doesn’t change where your electricity comes from or how it is transmitted to your home—the same electrons are delivered via the same power lines and the same utility maintains those lines and fixes power outages. It simply means you have the power to choose different rates, terms, and all the other details which work better for you.

AEP Energy believes that in order to do the right thing, every time, for every customer and every employee, transparency is key. It is an imperative ingredient for running an ethical and trustworthy business. From the tiny details of each price plan to the ease of locating our historical variable monthly rates, AEP Energy operates with integrity, and because we believe in doing the right thing for everyone, transparency matters. 


Doing the Right Thing

AEP Energy prides itself in many things, including our community involvement. Not only from a corporate standpoint, but right down to the individual employees, we believe in giving back to the communities we serve. Whether it’s our Small Business Solutions team supporting a local 4-H project by sponsoring a hog at the Hartford County Fair, our residential team cleaning up a park on Earth Day, or our employees preparing packages to send to our military personnel overseas for the holidays, “doing the right thing” is a core value in all of us.
