AEPs 20 Million Dollar Buyout

This is an article written by It talks about the 2002 buyout in which AEP purchased the town of Cheshire, Ohio for 20 million dollars. I found this information by accident and got a copy of a documentary that was done by Carey Murphy & Lea Prainsack, two women who went to Cheshire around the time of the buyout and documented a lot of it and the townsfolk.

It also has some information from Jeff Goodell’s book, Big Coal which is a wonderful read by the way.

All profits that makes on this article through advertising and sales are donated to, so give it a read. For every view a small donation is made.
