Our Environmental Efforts
Indiana Michigan Power is proud of its strong commitment to environmental responsibility. We know that energy and the environment are inextricably linked, so we work just as hard at protecting the environment as we do at providing affordable, reliable energy.
Every Spring, Indiana Michigan Power hosts the FalconCam, high atop the company's headquarters in Fort Wayne. Through a camera placed in a nesting box at One Summit Square, 26 stories above the street, you can watch falcons nesting, laying eggs, and raising their young. The nesting box was provided by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and IDNR biologists, along with volunteers from Soarin' Hawk and the Audubon Society help care for the young birds as necessary. The Fort Wayne nest box is one of the country's most successful falcon boxes.
We also invite to you spend some time at the environmental section of our corporate web site. You'll find information about AEP's environmental performance as well as our efforts with renewables and energy efficiency. You'll also learn about some very exciting environmental educational programs, and how we're helping students better understand the issues.
I&M works to balance the beauty of community forests with the equally important need to optimize public safety and service relaibility. Learn more about trees, safety and reliability.
