OG&E Plans to Expand Green Power Supplies

October 2007 - OGE Energy Corp. announced plans to quadruple its wind power production and build a high-capacity transmission line from western Oklahoma to Oklahoma City. According to a utility executive, the implementation of the company's plans could give more OG&E customers the choice of purchasing green power in a few years. The company already has 170 MW of wind power, which could be increased to about 770 MW under the new plan. A high-capacity transmission line, which would be a necessary part of the expansion, would be built from Oklahoma City to Woodward, eventually extending to Guymon. The transmission line is subject to the approval of the regional transmission authority.

The company's Wind Power Program is currently fully subscribed and has been maintaining a waiting list. About 10,000 customers are enrolled.
