OG&E Program Exceeds Expectations

Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E) reports that since launching its OG&E WindPower green pricing program on November 1, it has enrolled about 7,300 customers—about 1% of its customer base—exceeding the utility's expectations. The utility has already sold about one-third of the energy generated from its 51-MW share of the Oklahoma Wind Energy Center.

Under the OG&E WindPower program, the wind energy is sold in 100-kWh monthly increments for $2, or 2.0¢/kWh. However, green power subscribers are exempt from the utility's fuel adjustment charge—currently about 0.82¢/kWh—making the effective premium for the wind power about 1.18¢/kWh.
