Oklahoma Policies Affecting CHP

Statewide Interconnection Procedures: No

  • There are no standard regulations for interconnection of Distributed Generation. Larger facilities will follow the SPP Interconnection process.

Waste Heat Included in Renewable Portfolio Standard: Yes

  • The Oklahoma Legislature passed the Oklahoma Energy Security Act in 2010, which created a voluntary Renewable Energy Standard. Under the RES, the state has a goal of 15% of all installed capacity be generated from renewable resources by 2015.  Qualifying renewable energy resources include Demand-Side Management technologies such as the reuse of energy from exhaust gases.  However, Demand-Side Management technologies are limited to 25% of the 15% goal for the state.

Output-based Emission Standards: No

Fair Standby Rates: No

  • OG&E charges standby service through a fixed customer fee and low demand and energy charges.  This approach is viewed as not favorable toward CHP
    • OG&E’s rates are available here
    • Public Service Company of Oklahoma’s rates can be found here

CHP-Specific Incentives: No


As mentioned above, CHP is eligible for the Renewable Energy Standard. 

Additionally, Oklahoma offers an optional Property Assessed Clean Energy program (PACE).  This law may enable owners of commercial and industrial properties to obtain low-cost, long-term loans for water conservation, energy efficiency measures, and renewable generation.  These loans may be available for Combined Heat and Power and may serve to incent more development of these projects.
