Coal Plants Closing

American Electric Power (AEP) will shut down three plants in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky by 2015 — retiring a total of 2,011 megawatts of coal-burning capacity.  AEP agreed to install 200 megawatts of wind and solar energy by 2015 in Michigan and Indiana to partially offset the loss of coal-fired power. 

With the latest shut-downs, utilities have now closed or announced the closing of 142 coal-burning plants since 2010.  [Clean Techies]
