I think AEP did a HORRIBLE job with this recent power outage. It is unacceptable how long most people went without power. Some still don't have power after a week and 2 days. I guarantee AEP owners have never experienced a power outage at their own homes for more than an hour.... For the prices we pay, I think we deserve better service!

It's not my job to help them. My job is the one I couldn't get to because AEP didn't care enough to do their job! I pay my bill every month and it isn't cheap, I think they can make it where I have what I pay for. AEP doesn't give discounts for this happening and they don't look for better ways to provide us with electricity. They just raise rates and sit back doing NOTHING.

Well I for one am sending lots of thanks, prayers and blessings to AEP and the thousands of workers who traveled from all over to come help us thru this disaster. Ppl just don't understand how very difficult this job is for these fellas. I do, my husband is a lineman, it isn't easy work by far. And with the heat, repeated storms, and smart-ass non-supporters such as "TickedOff", their jobs have become even more difficult. Quit your bitchin' buddy and give these guys some praise! They disserve it!

i agree, it is a hard an sometimes dangerous job. what im saying is ,if AEP would take some of them millions they make an invest it in tree trimming and old pole replacement this might not have been so bad. now these men from outta state have to fight trees that shoulda been cleared long ago.and old poles too.think about it.how long has it been since you have seen a ASPLUND truck out trimming trees? we are using less power with these energy efficient appliances,but yet AEP is always applying to the commissions for a rate increse. HELLO GREEDY

Do you know who "owns" AEP? Please tell us how you are so confident that you can "guarantee" that the "owners" have never experienced a power outage at their homes.
Just the truth please

Sounds like TickedOff thinks he's really special. Isn't it just terrible how AEP chose to treat him so poorly! I guess AEP likes every one else a lot more than poor little TickedOff. He should really contact AEP and share his ideas on how they could have repaired the power lines so much better and quicker than they've been doing.

I give a great big kudo's to these power workers! I didn't get my power back on until yesterday and I am very thankful for that! I have talked to several workers that are local and guess what? They are still without power too! So their families are home, in the heat, without power just like yours! They are working 16-18 hour days in 100 + degree weather for you ungrateful, selfish people!!!!! What are you doing? Geesh People !!!

Do you realize how many people lost power???? You are really going to bitch about it??? more than 452,000 people in WV alone lost power. maybe you shouldnt rely on technology and be prepared for things like this. Did you really think they would restore that much power in a day? If you're going to bitch about something, then get off your ass and help them. ungrateful asshole.

My rant has NOTHING to do with the workers that were out busting their asses to get the power restored. It's about the company, AEP itself.

I do thank the workers that has worked their butts of in this heat! Though don't blame the guys who is restoring your power. As a corporation the men in the business suits and SHAREHOLDERS are the ones to be blame. The suits tells the guys where and when to go-NOT the ones who is in the heat.

I also agree that AEP should have had a planned because we had an EASY winter which leads to a hard summer.

The power continues to go off. AEP really needs to get these trees cut and this problem fixed. They should lower rates and appreciate their customers!

It has only been 28 days since the storm that started this crisis. Sometimes it takes years for an area to recover from a natural disaster. Mass destruction of our power lines isn't something that can be fixed over night. It may take a very long time to repair and rebuild all these lines. It is no easy task, and consists of very hard, dangerous work. Continuing storms delay progress, and cause further damage. And by the way, we do live in Mountains. If they were to cut every tree that just might hit the power lines, the Mountains would be quite bald, don't ya think? Being without power has been an a hardship for us all, get over it, your whining is helping no one.

The reason for them. To up the rate is they r having to lower there emissions and there redoing a lot of plants the price of coal is going up and just to get some of these of these older plant started after remodeling it takes close to a million gallons of diseases fule
