Public Service Company of Oklahoma Plans to Add Solar Capacity, Increase its Use of Wind Power

Public Service Co. of Oklahoma expected to add up to 200 megawatts of solar capacity and bolster its wind offerings, according to a planning document outlined before regulators on September 10, 2015. The utility, which has 543,000 electricity customers in eastern and southwestern Oklahoma, presented its draft integrated resource plan at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. Though not binding, utilities have to submit the plans every three years to regulators. The plan represents PSO's "best guess" at what its capacity and generation mix could look like by 2024. The utility expects to boost its natural gas generation, continue to add wind capacity and make a foray into utility-scale solar. Those changes come along with expected reductions in demand from various energy efficiency and conservation programs. If approved, the plan would increase residential customer bills 15% in the next year. The integrated resource plan assumes those projects will be complete and PSO's generation output from coal will go from 55% in 2015 to 16% by 2024. Natural gas generation would go from 13% to 47% in that same period. Wind would make up 28% of its electricity generation in 2024, almost double from 2015. The utility is still studying scenarios under the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan to cut carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. Fate said PSO's generating plants are well-positioned under the final version of the rule, but it's up to the state to formulate a compliance plan or let the federal government come up with one.PSO last year signed three power-purchase agreements for 600 megawatts of wind from Oklahoma projects that will come online by 2016. The utility said it also expects to add at least another 100 megawatts next year under its planning scenario to take advantage of low wind prices and the federal production tax credit. That would double PSO's current wind capacity, which is 690 megawatts. PSO's plan includes adding 50 megawatts of utility-scale solar each year from 2021 to 2024.PSO also expects to add 390 megawatts of natural gas generation in 2022 and another 870 megawatts of natural gas by 2024. Those would be base load, combined-cycle generating units. Among those options could be a natural gas repowering of a coal unit at PSO's Northeastern Station plant that's expected to retire in 2016. PSO is forecasting strong growth in the industrial class in the next couple of years, driven by demand in the oil and gas sector. PSO's electricity sales to the energy industry are up almost 22% from a year ago.
