(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / May 20, 2016) – City of Stillwater electric customers are being invited to purchase 100 percent clean, renewable energy via a third party company. However, no third party company has access to the City’s electric system that would be needed to deliver renewable or any other form of electricity to the City’s electric customers.
“Absolutely no one has access to the City of Stillwater’s electric system but us,” Deputy City Manager Dan Blankenship explained. “These third party companies typically are charging customers around 1.5 cents per kilowatt-hour in addition to the City’s electric rate, when the customers are getting the exact same electrons that they would get without paying the premium.”
Residents are receiving emails and letters from companies stating they can ensure 100 percent of electric usage is covered by clean, wind energy by setting up an online account to purchase the “clean” energy, but that is simply not true.
If you are a City of Stillwater electric customer and you have any questions or concerns about your electric service, call Utility Customer Service at 405-742-8245.
