CAMPAIGN: Electrical Safety Campaign


Learning about electricity and its potential dangers can be interesting and interactive. AEP’s online e-learning module will take about 45 minutes to complete. It will navigate you through various matching exercises, videos, knowledge checks and more to help explain how electricity works and how to stay safe around it.

AEP - American Electric Power
AEP ranks among the nation's largest generators of electricity, owning nearly 38,000 megawatts of generating capacity in the U.S.  AEP also owns the nation's largest electricity transmission system, a nearly 39,000-mile network that includes more 765 kilovolt extra-high voltage transmission lines than all other U.S. transmission systems combined.

AEP's utility units operate as AEP Ohio, AEP Texas, Appalachian Power (in Virginia, West Virginia), AEP Appalachian Power (in Tennessee), Indiana Michigan Power, Kentucky Power, Public Service of Oklahoma, and Southwestern Electric Power Company (in Arkansas, Louisiana and east Texas).
