Okla. Governor Signs Energy Measure, Other Bills

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has signed legislation that encourages the development of traditional fuels as well as alternative forms of energy.

The energy measure was among more than 30 bills Fallin signed Monday. Fallin issued an executive order to accompany her signing of the bill that says its intent is to protect Oklahoma consumers and encourage all forms of energy use.

The bill was developed in conjunction with the Oklahoma First Energy Plan, which promotes traditional fossil fuels like oil and natural gas as well as alternative forms of energy that include wind- and solar-generated power.

The order says about 350 individuals and organizations rely on distributed generation produced by small wind turbines or solar power generators, a number that's expected to grow.
