Quick Facts

  • 3rd in the U.S. for installed wind capacity and 6th for solar potential
  • 4th in the U.S. for wind energy employment
  • ⅓ of Oklahoma’s electricity generated from renewable resources an increase from less than 1/10 a decade ago

Wind

With a centralized U.S. location, immediate proximity to wind projects, and a position in the heart of the wind corridor, Oklahoma is the ideal site for wind generation, tower and blade production, turbine component manufacturing, repair and maintenance operations, and industry R&D.

Oklahoma’s manufacturers continue to expand and thrive from castings, machining, bearings and gears to forges, fabrications and suspended climbing systems, your potential suppliers are right here in Oklahoma.

Solar

Oklahoma’s centralized location provides cost advantages to solar manufacturers for their supply chain and product transportation, and gives companies easy access to consumer markets across the U.S., Mexico and Canada via the state’s port and interstate system infrastructure.

Institutions

Oklahoma Mesonet
