SUGAR LAND, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Kentucky Power Company (Frankfort, Kentucky) announced plans to retire Unit 2 of its Big Sandy Power Station, located in Louisa, Kentucky, in 2015.

(NYSE:AEP) (Columbus, Ohio), first said it would spend $940 million to install a flue gas desulphurization system to lower sulfur dioxide emissions at the 816-megawatt unit. But that plan was withdrawn in mid-2012 in part because installing scrubbers would drive up electric rates by about 31%.
