AEP Renewables is a subsidiary of American Electric Power and operates the Prairie Hills Wind project, which is under development in Custer County. When completed, the wind power project will produce 208 megawatts of renewable energy.
AEP Renewables donated $2,500 to Hope Harbor to assist in the nonprofit’s COVID-19 response.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities, we’re proud to lend a hand to local nonprofits as they work diligently to serve those struggling, and we thank them for their efforts to support our neighbors in need during this difficult time,” said Greg Hall, president of AEP Renewables.
Hope Harbor provides safe shelter and community assistance to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
