Balanced Approach
Each type of fuel on the OG&E system has its own unique benefits. While natural gas and coal are our base fuels, when the sun shines and the wind blows we also access solar and wind power. These fuels create our balanced approach to electric generation.

Southwest Power Pool

OG&E and other utilities generating power in nine states belong to the Southwest Power Pool (SPP). The SPP provides more affordable power to 15 million customers living and working in the region. Customers have access to increased renewables through transmission, particularly wind, from other states. Membership in the SPP allows OG&E to maintain affordable rates.

Environmental Responsibility
Power plants or renewable centers require multi-million dollar investments and are intended to last 30-65 years. When we build a new source of power generation, we focus on reliability, affordable rates and environmental responsibility.

Pioneers in Renewable Energy

OG&E pioneered the development of Oklahoma wind farms and built the first utility-scale solar energy farm in Oklahoma.
