American Electric Power’s (NYSE: AEP) AEP Energy Partners subsidiary has signed a long-term power purchase agreement with Atlanta Farms Solar Project, currently being developed by Savion, a renewable energy developer, for the project’s planned 200 MW output in Pickaway Co. Ohio.  

Construction of Atlanta Farms is scheduled to begin mid-to-late 2021, pending the approval of its permit with the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB). The project is anticipated to include approximately 600,000 solar panels capable of producing 200 MW of renewable energy and is expected to be operational by the end of 2022.

AEP Energy will use the power from Atlanta Farms to serve customers who want clean energy for their retail supply. Atlanta Farms Solar Project also would contribute renewable energy to supply the City of Columbus if the City’s aggregation proposal is passed in November and receives approval from City Council.
