Investing In a More Resilient Grid

Our customers rely on a variety of devices to power their homes and businesses every day. Using some of the nation’s premier wind and solar resources, we have reduced our carbon emissions by investing in 32 MW of owned solar capacity, 449 MW of owned wind power generation, 342 MW of wind-purchased power contracts, and converting over 1000 MW of coal generation to natural gas. In order to better meet the needs of those we serve, as well as mitigate the impact of increasing extreme weather, we've invested more than $3.7 billion in transmission, distribution, and grid advancements to improve reliability and resilience.

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
Since 2005, we have reduced our carbon emissions by 59%, exceeding the national average. We also achieved our goal to reduce carbon emissions from generation by 40% between 2005 and 2020. We believe we are on track to meet our expectations to lower emissions by 50% by 2030. (Emissions reductions will vary year-to-year based on a variety of factors, including some outside our control.)

Long Description for Carbon Dioxide Emissions - OG&E's Owned and Operated Fleet Chart


The line graph chart shows the Carbon Dioxide generated by OG&E owned and operated fleet for 2005, 2010, 2015, 2020 and 2022. Over 15 years, the chart shows a steady decrease in Carbon Dioxide emissions for each 5-year period.


Numerical values presented on the chart image:

Carbon Dioxide Emissions - OG&E's Owned and Operated Fleet
Year Carbon Dioxide Total Emissions in Metric Tons   
2005 23,992,764
2010 23,125,013
2015 18,839,633
2020 12,287,672


In 5-year increments, the line graph represents the amount of Carbon Dioxide emissions per year. Emissions listed for the time period are represented using lines descending left to right horizontally, with dots indicating the amount of emissions for the year listed.

How We’re Making a Difference
Grid Resilience
We’re deploying smarter technology that senses and isolates disruptions on our power grid and automatically reroutes power for our customers.
Prioritizing Investments
On our path to decarbonization, we’ve converted 35 percent of our coal-fueled fleet to natural gas while continuing to add more renewable energy.
Electrifying Our Vehicle Fleet
We’re reducing emissions by electrifying our entire light-duty vehicle fleet by 2030.

Investing in Clean Technology

The key to a sustainable future is ongoing renewable energy investments that reduce our environmental footprint. Our investments in clean technology give our customers the benefit of clean energy resources while maintaining reliability and affordability. From modernizing our vehicle fleet and partnering for technology development to promoting electrification and supporting the clean energy transformation, we are facilitating access to cleaner energy throughout our service area.

Solar Power
Pioneers in Solar Generation

We are leading the way in solar generation as the first utility in Oklahoma to offer universal solar power to customers. Our solar farms are located throughout Oklahoma and western Arkansas. About half of the energy from the solar farms in southeast Oklahoma provides renewable energy to the Chickasaw and Choctaw Nations while offering community solar opportunities to our residential customers.

Frontrunners in Wind Energy Use

As a pioneer in wind and solar adoption in our renewable-rich region, we continue to implement cleaner energy across our system. As a member of the Southwest Power Pool (SPP), a regional transmission organization (RTO) serving 15 states, our customers get the benefit of increased clean energy resources across the SPP while maintaining reliability and affordability. Our high-voltage transmission lines help share our wind-generating capacity with our SPP partners while supporting grid stability required for increased amounts of intermittent wind and solar resources. Power from our six active wind farms now comprises approximately 10 percent of OG&E’s generation mix. Wind is now the leading source of power for the SPP - on some windy days, wind generation has represented over 84 percent of the SPP’s generation mix.

Supporting Electric Vehicles

With more EVs hitting the road, OG&E is leading the way toward fast and reliable charging in our service area. As a founding member of the Oklahoma Electric Vehicle Coalition, OG&E helped form a group of stakeholders committed to increasing EV adoption in the state and joined the Midwest Charging EV Corridor, a seamless network of charging stations across the country designed to make charging easier when you’re on the road. At our OG&E Advanced Technologies Laboratory, we’re pilot testing battery packs built with locally sourced, repurposed EV batteries to support the fast-changing needs of our customers. Customers can opt to “fill up” electric vehicles when power prices are low with during OG&E’s low-cost SmartHours program.

Wind Power
Clean School Bus Program

We help rural and low-income school districts throughout Oklahoma apply for grants as part of the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) to replace existing school buses with zero-emission and low-emission models. The EPA recently awarded $18 million to the districts we supported, and we look forward to partnering with them to add these new electric school buses to their fleets.
