Oklahoma Gas and Electric, a subsidiary of OGE Energy Corp., has completed construction of its new, state-of-the-art Mustang Energy Center, near Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
According to company officials OG&E installed seven, modern natural gas-fired units to replace the 1950s-era power generating units at the former Mustang Power Plant. Mustang Energy Center can generate 462 MWs of power and is capable of starting and putting electricity onto the grid in under 10 minutes, compared to 10 to 20 hours for the former units.
"We're proud to usher in a new era of generation technology at a location that's powering our communities and facilitating a critical role in the region's growth and economic development," said OGE Energy Corp. Chairman, President & CEO Sean Trauschke. "Mustang Energy Center is more efficient, more sustainable and more responsive. And, it maintains its legacy of providing affordable, reliable power."
