Oklahoma City_Dell Inc. has announced plans to power its 240,000 square-foot Oklahoma City campus with 100% wind energy.

The company announced the deal with OG&E Monday as part of a plan to reduce its worldwide facilities' greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2015.

OG&E officials say Dell is among the first large businesses in the area to be powered entirely with renewable energy.
