Public Power Powering Oklahoma
The GRDA is organized to benefit the customers and citizens of Oklahoma. As a self-supporting state agency, we are funded by revenues from the sale of electricity instead of taxes. Throughout our history, the GRDA has supplied electricity at not-for-profit rates, while always operating on the ideals of public power.
The Coal Fired Complex reliably generates the majority of GRDA’s electricity, providing 24/7 wholesale electricity for municipalities, electrical cooperatives and industries. Our service area stretches across twenty-four Oklahoma counties and spans a four state region.
We sell power to sixteen Oklahoma municipal customers, as well as customers in Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas.
In 2008, the GRDA established a partnership with Google to provide electricity for their huge new internet communication facility.
Our reliable system was key to Google locating in Oklahoma, creating new opportunities as well as helping to power the internet and the future.
