Cost Competitive Expansion
Oklahoma’s expertly tailored policies, programs and incentives positively affect your business’s bottom line.

But what about the facts behind the rankings?
Oklahoma’s industrial electrical power costs are 28% lower (1.89¢/kWh lower) than the national prices. Over the course of a year that difference adds up, with Oklahoma’s industrial businesses saving more than $175 million and commercial businesses more than $200 million.
We know energy, and you reap the rewards. Unlike Texas, Oklahoma is part of the Southwest Power Pool where our blend of natural gas, coal, wind, solar, geothermal, and hydropower sources provide cleaner, more reliable power, all at significant savings.
