Cost Competitive Expansion

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

Affordable Power

Oklahoma’s industrial electrical power costs are 22% lower than the national prices at 5.52¢/kWh. That difference adds up, with Oklahoma’s industrial businesses saving $25,100 per 1,000,000 kWh.

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.

22% lower industrial electrical prices

It gets better. Even lower rates can be negotiated based on your business’s specific power requirements. Talk to our team to find out how. Call 800-588-5959.

At the Center

Located at the crossroads of North America – and with one of the largest inland, ice-free ports – means low business costs whether your supply chain is across the street or stretches around the globe.


Oklahoma’s multi-modal transportation infrastructure speeds your goods to market, all at lower costs. Learn more about how our transportation infrastructure can work for your business.

“It is not unusual for our customers to realize $100,000 or more in savings on a cargo shipment by barge from the Tulsa Port of Catoosa to the Gulf.”
— Alan Jackson, President, HSI Inc.
