Green power


Gazette staff February 13th, 2013

Oklahoma State University loves its orange and black, but it looks like there’s also room for a fair amount of green. That’s according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which named OSU fifth in the nation for green-power purchasing among colleges and universities.

“Purchasing green power helps our organization become more sustainable, while also sending a message to others across the U.S. that supporting clean sources of electricity is a sound business decision and an important choice in reducing climate risk,” said OSU President Burns Hargis.

Of the power that OSU purchases from Oklahoma Gas & Electric, 67 percent is green and is produced at Cowboy Wind Farm, a 26-turbine facility near Blackwell.
