Oklahoma First Energy Plan

Date Last Updated5/13/2013
Policy TypeState Energy Plan
Policy Administrator/Contact OfficeOklahoma Secretary of Energy
Policy Initiation Date1/1/2011
Policy SummaryThe Oklahoma First Energy Plan examines 10 priority areas, including natural gas and oil, renewables, power generation and transmission, industrial and environment. CHP is an important component of the industrial strategy: "Capture the benefits of energy efficiency and CHP opportunities in industrial processes." Six recommendations are listed under this strategy:
  • "Encourage coordination between industry and utilities or firms specializing in recognizing and implementing efficiency potential.
  • Explore programs and policies that encourage upgrading boilers and process heat applications with modern efficient equipment.
  • Encourage load-leveling and peak-shaving practices through demand-side management opportunities and through favorable structured rates.
  • Encourage utilities to allow reduced back-up capacity requirements or reduced fees associated with standby charges to encourage more robust investments in CHP applications.
  • Employ emissions standards that account for efficiencies and evaluate industrial emissions based on the total useful energy actually produced, not simply the fuel put into the system.
  • Evaluate the feasibility of providing feed-in tariffs or net-metering that allow compensation (based on the time of generation) for companies that put power back into the grid".
