AEP is a clear and present danger to Arkansas sovereignty, economy and private property rights.
AEP is an Ohio corporation. AEP has been selling projects to Arkansas piecemeal hiding the truth behind their projects and deceiving APSC: Flint Creek scrubbers, Flint Creek to Shipe Road, Shipe Road to Kings River, and more to come to get APSC approval every time for the last 10 years, only to benefit AEP. The AEP threat is not only about private property rights. AEP is a serious threat to the economy and sovereignty of the Natural State.

1. Why would Arkansas give all its funds to AEP and deny citizens the funds for other projects with long term benefit for the people of Arkansas? For over 10 years, APSC has rubber stamped every AEP large project application, 100% of the time, 17 out 0f 17. Chairman Colette Honorable, Comissioner Olan Reeves, Executive Director John Bethel, Senior Electrical Engineer Clark Cotten and a long list of past and current APSC senior staff are also members of SPP, the agency that helps Arkansas Utility companies requesting power plants and transmission lines, telling the public we need $$$ to keep the lights on, a clear conflict of interest as AEP SWEPCO Entergy Carroll Electric and all other utilities belong to SPP!
2. Why not invest in the forestry, agriculture and eco-tourism for the future of Arkansas?
3. Why would APSC let AEP bankrupt our State? Our public officials at County, State and Federal level repeatedly have told citizens that there is nothing they can do, that all is up to APSC.
