OGE to pay Clean Air Act violation

Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. (OG&E) will pay $300,000 to the state Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) after agreeing to take steps to reduce emissions from its coal-fired power plants, according to The Oklahoman.

OG&E has agreed to reduce emissions from its coal plants, including the 1,716 MW Muskogee and the 1,138 MW Sooner power plants, which DEQ indicated had repeatedly violated federal and state Clean Air Act standards since 2005.

OG&E will pay a civil penalty of $150,000 and contribute an additional $150,000 to DEQ’s Small Community Supplemental Environmental Project Fund, as well as taking steps to cut emissions.
