The Importance of the OEC Solar Garden

OEC’s Solar Garden, an innovative new approach to providing solar power to our membership, is the first of its kind in Oklahoma. Each member can now benefit from renewable energy without the significant capital investment and upkeep required to maintain solar panels on their individual properties — and without being required to pay a hefty, per panel subscription fee.

Renewable Energy FAQs

Renewable energy, or distributed generation (DG), refers to the generation of electricity by small-scale facilities. DG systems are located at or near where the electricity is being used and are designed to replace or supplement traditional, central station power plants. DG is not always connected to OEC's distribution system; however, the most common types of DG in Oklahoma – solar and wind – are almost always interconnected.
