Please stand with me for energy

by on August 18, 2014

A message from Nick Akins, AEP chairman, president and chief executive officer:

Bringing comfort to our customers, supporting business and commerce, and building strong communities is not a mission that AEP takes lightly.

As you know, legislative and regulatory issues across the country undoubtedly will have an impact on our industry’s ability to provide customers with reliable, affordable and increasingly clean electricity. It’s important that leaders in Washington and in our state capitals fully recognize the role of a strong electric power industry in powering America forward. They also must understand that decisions they make affect not only our industry, but also the communities and customers we serve.WSFE_11x17

That’s why AEP has joined a national initiative called We Stand For Energy. This online community unites employees, retirees, stakeholders and consumers to tell the story of how electricity powers our lifestyle, our communities, our economy and life’s possibilities.

We Stand For Energy is about smart energy solutions. This online community will work to ensure the nation’s energy policies:

  • Create jobs;
  • Strengthen local communities and economies;
  • Spur development of innovative technologies;
  • Help us meet the demand for electricity through a diverse supply of domestic energy sources; and
  • Provide a secure energy future for all Americans.


Please support this effort by joining We Stand For Energy today. Simply go to to sign up. Once you have joined, you can visit at any time to learn and share information about the value and role of electricity. From time-to-time, you will be invited to participate in other ways, such as joining social media conversations, taking part in We Stand For Energy events or sharing our critical messages.

AEP and our industry are leading the charge to power unlimited possibilities. I hope you’ll join me and take a stand for policies that support a bright energy future for our customers, our company and our country.
