OG&E’s FanPower Program

ok_wind_2_30429a     Power derived from the use of wind turbines has been around for centuries.  In Persia (now known as Iran) windmills were used as early as 200 B.C. to run machines that ground grain or drew water from wells.    In 1887 the first recorded wind turbine used to charge a battery was created by a Scottish academic James Blyth to light his home in Scotland.

Today, wind farms dot the skyline all across rural areas and are a renewable source of energy for your home and business.  Everything old is new again!

As a residential OG& E customer, you can sign up for wind powered energy.  Your home can be powered with wind energy for as little as 25%, 50% or even 100% of your electricity usage just by signing up.  And after all, this is Oklahoma “where the wind comes sweeping down the plains.” The wind is blowing most of the time.

To get your enthusiasm up and running for wind power, OG & E is hosting a contest.  #FanPower could win you tickets to either OU or OSU football games. Just sign up for wind power and then tell your friends and family about the program.  Ask them to sign up too and you could win tickets to the games.  Go to http://www.ogepet.com/fanpower  to check out the #FanPower possibilities.

OG&E has many new ideas to reduce your energy consumption like SmartHours, myOGpower and their Home Energy Efficiency Program (HEEP).  Just go to http://oge.com/environment/EnergyEfficiency/Pages/EnergyEfficiency.aspx and check out the new ideas for consuming less energy and saving money.  You’ll be glad you did. Be sure to follow them on Twitter @OGandE or like them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/OGEpower.
