AEP Ohio Weighs in on Pick for PUCO Chairman

COLUMBUS — “Sam Randazzo’s appointment to chair the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio sent up red flags to supporters of AEP’s 400 megawatt solar farm.

Randazzo’s former group, Industrial Energy Users-Ohio, is against the proposal.

AEP Ohio Vice President Marc Reitter said Randazzo is smart and experienced, and Reitter hopes he gives their proposal a fair shot.

‘He’ll evaluate the record and I think he’ll find that these projects offer economic hope to a part of the state that I think has been left behind. And I think he’ll find merit in that,’ Reitter said.”
