Saving Oklahomans Money
Wind power will save Oklahomans $1.2 billion
The U.S. Department of Energy released a report in 2018 that shows the cost of developing new wind projects is dropping, even as new turbine designs are increasing the amount of power generated by each turbine.
As a result, wind farms can be built and operated for less than any other form of power generation.
This means the cost of electricity is dropping for consumers too. Wind power purchase agreement prices are at all-time historical lows across the Nation. The wind power generated in our state is forecasted to save Oklahomans $1.2 billion.
State-funded Universities powered by clean energy
Both Oklahoma State University and University of Oklahoma are named by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as two of the Top 30 College & Universities representing the largest green power users among higher education institutions.
The University of Oklahoma is #8 with more than 70 percent of the total electricity used is generated by wind energy. Oklahoma State University is ranked #14 with 67 percent of its total electricity used.
