AEP / PSO Offers Its Customers the Option to Purchase "100% Home-Grown Oklahoma Wind Power"

By Rich Fisher


Tulsa, OK – On today's StudioTulsa, we hear from two media representatives from AEP / Public Service Company of Oklahoma: Stan Whiteford is a corporate spokesperson for PSO, and Dawn Carey is an energy-efficiency coordinator for the company. They tell us all about a newly announced PSO program --- it's called WindChoice --- that allows private customers as well as businesses to buy "100% home-grown Oklahoma wind power." Interested customers can purchase such power in blocks of 100 kilowatt-hours per month --- at an extra cost of $1.72 per block, which is added to one's regular PSO electric bill. (To learn more about this program, you can visit https://www.psoklahoma.com/account/bills/manage/WindChoice.aspx.) Also on our show, commentator Barry Friedman checks in with his daughter, a young woman who now lives in France, sports a lip-ring, drinks red wine from the bottle, and has a boyfriend who's able to prepare homemade hummus.
