Site description

Public Service Company of Oklahoma, a subsidiary of American Electric Power (AEP), operates Northeastern Power Station, which first opened in 1971 along the Verdigris River near Oologah, Oklahoma in Rogers County. The facility operated two coal-fired units, both with a capacity of 490-MW (980-MW total), with an additional three units powered by natural gas. Coal-fired Unit 4 was retired in 2016, while Unit 3 is scheduled to be retired by 2026. The plant has disposed of coal ash in a 65-acre unlined ash landfill since 1978. The station has two CCR Units: Bottom Ash Pond and Landfill. You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information on Northeastern Power Station, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report.
