OG&E has filed a proposal for review and approval by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) to replace two aging power generation units at Horseshoe Lake Power Plant in eastern Oklahoma County. These units have served customers for more than 60 years, but as the units have aged, they have become difficult and costly to maintain – in fact, some parts are no longer available, according to OG&E.
The OCC has scheduled a hearing for mid-October to discuss this project, and as part of its approval.
If the project is approved by the Commission, OG&E customers will not see any charges on monthly bills related to these new power generation units until they are operational, which is planned for late 2026.
OG&E anticipates the average residential customer would see an increase of $2.20 per month at that time.
“The Horseshoe Lake generation project is a great opportunity to provide improved reliable and resilient electric service for you as we continue to plan for the future. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and all our customers,” OG&E said in an email to customers.
