Public Service Co. of Oklahoma (PSO) says it has made it easier for customers to take advantage of Oklahoma wind energy, and at a lower cost.

According to the utility company, it has reduced the cost of its WindChoice program by more than 40% and is also offering customers more flexibility on the amount of wind energy they purchase. WindChoice is a voluntary program that allows residential, commercial and industrial customers to buy Oklahoma-produced wind power for part or all of their energy needs in 100 kWh blocks or as a percentage of their total monthly billed usage. The utility notes that a typical PSO residential customer could subscribe almost half of their usage for just an extra $5 per month.

“PSO is pleased to now offer customers even better options through the WindChoice program,” says Bobby Mouser, PSO’s director of customer services and marketing. “By providing a lower price and greater flexibility, we’re making it easier than ever for our customers to take advantage of and promote the tremendous energy resource that is our Oklahoma wind.”

The electricity generated for PSO’s WindChoice program comes from the Minco Wind Farm, a 99 MW facility in western Oklahoma that is dedicated to supplying power for the program.
