SO9 - Operations with significant potential or actual negative impacts on local communities

The size and nature of AEP's power generation, transmission and distribution facilities are such that they have the potential to negatively impact a local community if they are not operated with care and concern for people and the environment. AEP is cognizant of the impact its operations can have on surrounding communities and the people who live in them. As a result, the company operates it faciliites in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations, strives to eliminate or minimize the effects of any activities that would have a negative impact on local communities, and works collaboratively with communities to proactively address any issues that might arise unexpectedly.
