CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, April 23, 2019 – American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP) will continue investing in its regulated businesses, renewables and new technologies to deliver value to customers and shareholders, according to Nicholas K.

“Over the next five years, we plan to invest $33 billion in our regulated businesses and contracted renewables, including $16.6 billion in transmission and $8.3 billion in distribution. Our capital investment plan supports our target operating earnings growth range of 5% to 7%,” Akins said.

“AEP continually delivers strong earnings and dividend growth driven by our investments in a smarter, cleaner energy system,” Akins said. “Beyond our capital investments, our employees and their commitment to the customers and communities we serve drives the success of our company. Our talented workforce is focused on providing reliable, affordable and cleaner energy and new technologies to meet our customers’ needs and expectations,” Akins said.
