AEP Columbus Southern History

In 1968, American Electric Power Company (AEP) proposed to acquire Columbus & Southern Ohio Electric Company through an exchange of common stock. Changing conditions in the electric utility industry delayed the merger completion until 1980.

For years afterward, both AEP Columbus Southern and AEP Ohio Power continued operating as separate utilities. That changed in 2014 when AEP Columbus Southern was merged into AEP Ohio Power.

The two utilities are now jointly managed under the name "AEP Ohio" as two rate zones; Columbus Southern Power and Ohio Power. Their generation supply and distribution rates, however, are the same.
