Oklahoma Gas and Electric to expand Choctaw Nation solar project by 5 MW

Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OG&E) announced that it will expand its Choctaw Nation/OG&E Solar Energy Center in Durant, Oklahoma, by an additional 5 MW, bringing the total solar capacity to 10 MW. OG&E will construct, own and operate the additional 5-MW expansion, which is expected to come online by the end of 2021.

“We are proud to continue our collaboration with the Choctaw Nation with this expansion of the Solar Energy Center in Durant,” said OGE Energy Chairman, president and CEO Sean Trauschke. “OG&E remains an industry leader in reducing its impact on the environment, while at the same time maintaining some of the lowest rates in the nation. With this addition, we continue to advance our popular customer driven renewable energy offerings.”

“The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma welcomes the opportunity to expand our commitment to renewable energy. We are excited to grow our partnership with OG&E and give back to our Mother Earth by utilizing a safe, reliable energy source that is environmentally friendly and will further reduce our carbon footprint in Southeast Oklahoma,” said Gary Batton, Chief of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.
