Renewable Energy Goal

Value:Varies

The Energy Security Act effectively established a renewable portfolio standard to guide state energy investment. The Act required utilities in the state to generate at least 15% of their retail energy from renewable sources by 2015, but without stepped progress "checkpoints" or longer-term goals enumerated. In lieu of renewable energy credits, compliance with the standard goal was measured through annual reports sent to the Oklahoma legislature. Currently, 25.9% of retail energy in Oklahoma is generated renewably. The same legislation elevated the status of natural gas as the preferred fossil fuel for energy generation. Utilities that do not use natural gas are required to explain why they made that choice to the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.

Energy Standards for State Buildings

Value:Varies

Previously in Oklahoma, new state facilities were required to meet certain energy-efficient building standards and seek certification from the Office of Management and Enterprise Services. The statutes codifying this requirement were repealed in 2013. Oklahoma still sets energy efficiency standards at the state level for public and private buildings to follow at their choice. The state government may seek ENERGY STAR certification for buildings at its discretion.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • As a general rule, unless there are local limitations, the main limitations to the amount of solar panels you can put on your roof are the available space on your roof, your electricity usage, your providers net metering rules, and the limitations of your house hold electrical system.
  • Based on our research the average price per installed watt is $3.99 in Oklahoma. This means for a 10kW system you can expect to pay $39,900 though pricing can vary significantly between installers based on the projects requirements.
  • Based on a Zillow research study from 2019, home with solar panels sell for roughly 4.1% more.
  • To generate the most power, solar panels in the United States should face true south as this generally results in the solar panels receiving the most light each day throughout the course of the year. That said, given that energy prices are often variable throughout the day, your installer may recommend you rotate your panels slightly so that the panels will receive more light at the end of the day when energy prices can be more expensive. That said, for most consumers the positioning of solar panels is highly dependent on your home's roof.
