The group boasts 369 members, including Oklahoma City-based OGE Energy Corp. “OGE Energy is in the coalition because we support production tax credits that make wind power cheaper to buy for our customers,” spokeswoman Kathleen O’Shea said. “We also support the efforts to retain and grow jobs in Oklahoma.” The Governors’ Wind Energy Coalition also has offered its support to legislation to extend the incentive for wind development. Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is a member of the coalition, but she has not taken a position on the tax credit.
