ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the plan of AEP Ohio, an affiliate of American Electric Power Co. to negotiate a long-term power purchase contract for all of the output of a photovoltaic array to be built in southeastern Ohio by Turning Point Solar LLC. Both Prius and Isofoton, Spanish solar equipment manufacturers, are negotiating with Turning Point to supply solar modules and solar trackers for the project. It expects 20 megawatts of power to be in commercial operation by late 2012. Particular focus is given to the state's renewable energy standard.
