American Electric Power says lower demand for electricity is prompting the company to keep 10 of its smaller, coal-fired generating units off line for much of the year.
In Virginia, two units at the Glen Lyn plant and one unit at the Clinch River plant in Carbo will be kept off line until needed.
The other units are in Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia.
AEP says the units have not been used much in recent years, and the recession has brought fewer opportunities to sell excess power into wholesale markets.
