OG&E Seeks Wind Energy Bids

February 2003 - Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E), which serves about 700,000 retail electricity customers in Oklahoma and western Arkansas, announced that it has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for 50 MW of wind energy to supply a voluntary green pricing program for its Oklahoma-based residential and business customers. The proposals are due in March and project selection is planned for April or May. OG&E expects the wind energy to be available for sale to its customers by the fall of 2004.

The utility plans to offer blocks of wind power for an extra $5 each month. Each block is expected to be 400 kWh but the final determination will be made once a wind power purchase contract has been approved. Under the terms of the new tariff, the wind power purchases will be exempt from fuel cost adjustments.
