Wind provided record 40.2% of Oklahoma’s statewide electricity generation in 2019

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Oklahoman:Oklahoma’s use of wind energy to generate electricity continues to increase. A record 40.2% of all state’s generated energy in 2019 was powered by renewable technology, Oklahoma Power Alliance representatives announced Tuesday during a Clean Energy Day at the state Capitol.In 2018, Oklahoma’s wind farms generated about 36% of the energy created inside the state, up from 33% the previous year.“This data tells a strong story” about Oklahoma’s continued leadership in renewable energy deployment, Mark Yates, vice president of the Advanced Power Alliance and its policy director in Oklahoma, said Tuesday. He noted wind’s use to generate electricity in Oklahoma during the year only was surpassed by natural gas, which generated another 46.3%.Alliance data showed Oklahoma ranked second among U.S. states for 2019 for the amount of energy its wind farms generated, and third for the amount of wind capacity installed. The alliance estimates more than $20 billion has been invested in renewable projects within the state.It also issued data showing the industry’s completed wind projects are ranked as a top-three taxpayer in 19 Oklahoma counties and 65 Oklahoma school districts. Projects’ owners made about $51 million in land lease payments to farmers and ranchers throughout 26 of Oklahoma’s counties in 2019. “These investments continue to transform Oklahoma’s rural economies by offering new career opportunities, circulating new income, creating sales tax revenue, and providing valuable ad valorem,” he said.[Jack Money]More: Backers of renewable energy highlight industry’s growth at Capitol event Tuesday Wind provided record 40.2% of Oklahoma’s statewide electricity generation in 2019last_img read more

Towns, city deserve fair share of sales tax

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion There’s a real issue this election that the Schenectady County Legislature has truly hoarded a disproportionate share of the sales tax dollars and is shortchanging every town and the city of Schenectady.Every legislator up for election this year has failed the people who have voted them into office with the exception of Glenville Supervisor Chris Koetzle and Councilman Jim Martin — they’re the only ones speaking up. And if we want our fair share, we need to have a clean sweep of the career politicians, especially those who are double-dipping from public dollars on the county payroll.In 2004, Schenectady County sales tax revenues were approximately $48 millio. Since then, these revenues have grown to approximately $98 million. Niskayuna, Glenville, Rotterdam and the city’s share have practically remained stagnant, while these revenues have more than doubled. The bottom line is every local portion of your property tax bill could be reduced by up to 50 percent.Do you want your fair share? Vote Row B and send a message that we are mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore.Peter GuidarelliSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Anderson starts, but Dodgers finish off NLCS winTroopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stopSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positions As a former Schenectady city councilman and county legislator, I can speak from experience regarding the need for our elected city, town and county officials to fight for the people who elect them into office.last_img read more
