Where Is Wind Energy Cheaper than Natural Gas?

Answer: The gas-rich states of Oklahoma, Texas, and Colorado. This week, utility Public Service Co. of Oklahoma announced that it tripled its planned purchase of 200 MW of wind energy, to 600 MW, because of the immediate savings to its customers and the 20-year guaranteed stable pricing.

Two weeks ago, the consumer-owned cooperative utility Tri-State increased its purchases from a wind farm in northeast Colorado.
