Oklahoma Municipals Offering Wind Power

February 2004 - Edmond Electric, a municipal utility serving 31,300 electricity customers outside of Oklahoma City, is the first utility member of the Oklahoma Municipal Power Association (OMPA) to announce a wind power purchase option for its electricity customers. Through the pure&simple wind power program, customers can purchase wind energy in 100-kWh increments for $1.80, or a premium of 1.8¢/kWh. Customers can also purchase wind energy for their entire monthly electricity use. The wind energy purchases are exempt from the utility's monthly fuel-cost charge, which lowers the effective wind energy premium to 1¢/kWh under the current fuel-cost structure.

The power supply for the program comes from OMPA's 51-MW wind energy project located in northwestern Oklahoma. A number of other OMPA utility members plan to offer the product as well.
