OU, UCO Recognized for Green Power

September 8, 2016

 

The University of Oklahoma (OU) uses wind power to provide 56 percent of its electricity use. In a contract with the Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company (OG&E), OU expects to purchase 100 percent of its energy from wind power by 2013. This commitment is instrumental in enabling OG&E to build the OU Spirit Wind Farm – along with the required distribution lines to the grid – in northwestern Oklahoma. 

The University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) is purchasing 100 percent of its power from wind. Using 26 million kilowatt-hours of green power annually, it is one of the largest purchasers of green power by a college or university in the nation. The university also has on-site bio-diesel production, works with a performance contractor to increase its energy performance, and employs Energy Star-labeled products.
