The Truth Behind Wind Farms in Oklahoma
It might surprise you to know the Industrial Wind Industry in Oklahoma is largely unregulated.
As it stands today, the wind industy can build 400+ foot turbines right next to your home or property, regardless of whether you want them there. And there are no regulations in place requiring them to operate turbines safely or provide adequate funding to decommission abandoned sites.
When asked in a 2015 poll, 68.4% of Oklahomans want to see increased oversight and safety guidelines when it comes to wind farms. And 72.4% want the Oklahoma Corporation Commission – which currently oversees all other electricity generation – to regulate wind energy as well.
As Oklahomans, we understand abandoned energy sites. And we know our friends, neighbors and children deserve better.
