More than 1,000 OG&E residential and business customers now are taking part in OG&E's newest wind power offering. As part of its Positive Energy Together campaign, OG&E encourages its customers to support wind power by signing up at oge.com.

‘Our newest wind power offering has been open only a few weeks and we are already seeing a great response from our customers,’ says Jesse Langston, OG&E vice president of utility commercial operations. ‘By signing up for wind power or by increasing their existing commitment to renewable energy, our customers can help us avoid the addition of any fossil fuel power plants until 2020.’

OG&E customers can purchase wind power for 25%, 50% or 100% of their monthly electricity usage.

More than 250 business customers of all sizes have made commitments to operate their facilities on OG&E wind power. Some of the larger companies signing up include Dell, Hitachi Computer Products Inc., the Chickasaw Tribal Utility Authority and Tinker Air Force Base.

OG&E began offering wind power in 2003, and its portfolio now includes 170 MW of wind energy. The company plans to add up to 700 MW by 2012.
