Electricity

Since January 2013, the OG+E Cowboy Wind Farm in Blackwell, OK has provided 72% of OSU-Stillwater's electrical power. The chart below shows our total wind usage for calendar year 2015.

Our 2015 year to date CO2 savings will be available soon.

Our 2015 CO2 savings was equivalent to 277 railcars worth of coal not burned! As a result of OSU's Green Power Partnership with OG+E, in 2016 we ranked #8 in Top 30 Universities, and #51 in the EPA's National Top 100 for leadership in renewable energy.
