Project details

Oklaunion Power Station offers more than 1,800 acres in North Central Texas with approximately 1,000 acres currently available for development.

Thanks to the enormous rail and transloading infrastructure in place, this site is extremely attractive to companies who need to move freight, aggregate or project cargo in large units. Two unit trains can be accommodate at once and utility infrastructure including power, water, sewer, and fiber optic are available in large capacity to meet nearly any needs. Large natural gas transmission lines are proximate and can be brought to the site for respective gas demands.

History of location

The Oklaunion Power plant in Vernon, TX faced droughts, heat waves, market changes, and even a tornado in its 34 years of operation. The coal fired power plant began operation on December 24, 1986 and had its fair share of accomplishments during its tenure. Power Industry Division, POWID, named the plant the most technologically advanced plant in the nation in 1994.

The facility has embraced the LEAN (Continuous Improvement) culture and has realized many one time and sustainable savings. Oklaunion officially became part of American Electric Power in 2000 when AEP completed the merger with Central and South West. Unfortunately, the increase demand for wind, solar, and natural gas lead to the plant officially being retired on September 30th, 2020.
