AEP prepares for snowstorm-related power outages in Texas

American Electric Power (AEP) Texas is making contingency plans as icy, winter weather has the potential to cause widespread power outages across West Texas.

The regional headquarter cities of Abilene and San Angelo, which are responsible for all electric customers served by AEP Texas in West Texas, have called upon additional line, service and support crews to help out existing crews.

AEP Texas emergency management will continue to monitor the weather throughout the weekend and make arrangements to ensure that sufficient resources are called upon to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.

AEP Texas, a unit of American Electric Power, delivers electricity to about 1,000,000 homes, businesses and industries in south and west Texas. AEP Texas provides regulated energy delivery service to consumers, regardless of which Retail Electric Provider they choose. The regional headquarters is in Corpus Christi.
