John E. Amos Coal Power Plant is a three-unit coal-fired power plant owned and operated by Appalachian Power, a subsidiary of American Electric Power (AEP). With a nameplate rating of 2,933 MW, it is the largest utility in the AEP system. John E. Amos Coal Power Plant was named after a Democratic National Committeeman from West Virginia. The plant is located between the US Route 35 (Winfield Road) and the Kanawha River, on its riverfront.

Units 1 and 2 are of 816.3 MW nameplate capacity each, and were started up in September 1971, and June, 1972 respectively. Unit 3, rated at 1,300 MW, was started up in October, 1973. All units are super-critical, dry-bottom boilers powered by a blend of low-sulfur coal and Northern Appalachian Basin high-sulfur coal. The Babcock and Wilcox Company (B&W) has been awarded a contract valued well in excess of $100 million to supply and construct wet flue gas desulfurization on all three units. Unit 3 is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2007, and Units 1 and 2 are scheduled to go online by the end of 2008.
