OG&E helps AEP with restoration efforts

Oklahoma City, July 10, 2012 — OG&E is helping restore power to thousands of American Electric Power customers following the June 30 storm that left millions without power. More than 140 OG&E linemen and contractors are assisting with the effort.

Crews left July 1 to begin work in Indiana. The linemen worked through the week to help restore power to the 118,000 AEP customers affected by the storm. Once all customers were restored to power, AEP requested OG&E report to Charleston, W.Va. Saturday, July 7, to continue restoration assistance to the 57,000 customers still without power.

OG&E, a unit of Oklahoma City-based OGE Energy Corp., serves nearly 790,000 electric customers in Oklahoma and western Arkansas.
