Water plays an integral part in electricity generation, and OG&E deploys sustainable ways to use—and reuse—this precious resource. As our communities expand and we continue to meet a growing demand for electricity, we are integrating new technologies and further conserving the water needed for future generations.
Our water conservation measures create and maintain a sustainable and beneficial water supply for the communities we serve. We return nearly all of our cooling water throughout the region for reuse and source all of our water from regions classified by the World Resources Institute as low or low-medium baseline water stress. None of OG&E’s water is sourced from regions classified as having high or extremely high baseline water stress. To limit our use of fresh water, cooling towers at two of our plants rely entirely on treated waste water from Oklahoma City’s facilities.
