“Unlike most weather events, we know which generation resources within the American Electric Power system that could be affected by the solar eclipse. Unlike some areas of the country, Kentucky Power does not currently generate electricity using solar that most likely would be affected. In areas of the country served by AEP where electricity is generated by solar, other power plants, such as the coal and natural gas plants owned by Kentucky Power, can ramp up to replace the electricity usually produced by solar panels. That’s the benefit of a diverse mix of power plants.”
