As a result of the opening of a new 93-turbine 150-megawatt wind farm in Southwestern Oklahoma, the state of Oklahoma wind power industry’s 1265 turbines is now supplying enough energy to power 600,000 homes, according to the Oklahoma Sustainability Network.
Despite its anti-environmental reputation, Oklahoma is making tremendous strides supplying renewable energy, constructing LEED buildings and developing water conservation policies.
Recently featured in the New York Times Green Blog, the state has actively pursued policies to reduce water usage. In fact, the state’s goal is to use no more water in 2060 than they use in 2012. The ambitious goal was established a year after one of the worst droughts in the state’s history.
