Oklahoma is indeed "O.K." under the watch of its first ever female Governor Mary Fallin. While "the wind comes sweepin down the plain", Mary talks about wind technology & harnessing it to take advantage of her state's heavy winds & show Oklahoma students that her administration is into environmental sustainability for the state power grid. Wind power is big in The Netherlands where my father & his family immigrated to Canada from, as a result I am very interested in wind tech. Even television's J.R. Ewing (actor Larry Hagman) who played an evil oil magnate on "DALLAS" was big on solar & wind energy resources in his later years!
"Today, Oklahoma's wind industry is among the strongest in the nation & is an integral part of our power grid & our economy."
