Additional OMPA Members Offer Wind Option

July 2004 - Another five municipal utilities served by the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) now offer a wind energy option to their retail customers. Approximately 15,000 residential and business customers served by the municipal utilities of Tonkawa, Altus, Frederick, Okeene, and Prague can purchase wind energy in 100-kWh increments each month for $1.80, or a rate premium of 1.8¢/kWh. Participating customers are exempt from monthly fuel cost charges and must agree to enroll in the program for a minimum of six months.

OMPA receives half of the output of the 102-MW Oklahoma Wind Energy Center located in northwestern Oklahoma. Edmond Electric Power was the first OMPA member to offer wind energy to its customers, when it launched its pure&simple program in January. To date, about 2% of the utility's customers have enrolled.
