End of an era

by on January 7, 2013
Conesville Plant retirees from Operations Eldon Williard (left) and John Matis (right) were on hand as preparations were made to trip Conesville Unit 3 off line for the final time at 4:54 p.m. December 30, 2012.  Both men were involved in the start up of Unit 3 in the early 1960s. Conesville Unit 3 was a 165-megawatt coal-fired unit that began service in 1962. The AEP Ohio plant in Conesville, Ohio, continues to operate its three other units, Unit 4 (780 MW), and units 5 and 6 (375 MW each), which began service in 1973, 1976 and 1978, respectively. AEP jointly owns Unit 4 (43.5 percent ownership); other owners are DP&L and Duke.
