Regulators Approve OG&E Program

August 2003 - The Oklahoma Corporation Commission approved a green pricing program that will be offered to customers of Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E) beginning in October. The power will come from OG&E's one-half purchase share of the 102-MW Oklahoma Wind Energy Center project that is under construction near Woodward, OK. The base price of the wind power will be $2.00 per 100-kWh block, or 2.0¢/kWh, but green power subscribers will be exempted from the utility's fuel adjustment charge—currently about 1.5¢/kWh—making the effective premium for the wind power about 0.5¢/kWh. An average residential customer could thus purchase wind energy to meet its entire electricity needs for an additional $5.00 monthly charge.
