TULSA, OK (KSWO) – Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO) announced the approximately 360-mile power line route for the Wind Catcher Energy Connection project.

Wind Catcher will bring low-cost, renewable energy and jobs to Oklahoma and provide new tax revenue for the state, schools and local governments. 

“At PSO we are committed to working with landowners and the community to bring the benefits of Wind Catcher to customers,” said John Harper, PSO vice president, external affairs. “In addition to bringing customers some of the lowest-cost power available, the communities along the line route will see approximately $300 million in additional property taxes over the next 25 years.”

Wind Catcher will harness wind energy from the western panhandle of Oklahoma and deliver it to customers across Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana. 

Three community open houses are scheduled for January. For more information, please visit the project website at: https://psoklahoma.com/info/projects/windcatcher/.

The project is expected to deliver wind energy to customers by the end of 2020.
