INHOFE WELCOMES OG&E’S ROWLETT BEFORE EPW COMMITTEE

“A Leader In Renewable Energy Development, OG&E Serves As Model To Energy Suppliers Across The Country.”

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, today welcomed Donald R. Rowlett, Director of Regulatory Policy and Compliance for OG&E Energy Corp., before the Senate EPW Committee. Senator Inhofe invited Mr. Rowlett to testify at the hearing, "Legislative Hearing on America's Climate Security ACt of 2007, S. 2191." OG&E is a regulated utility company that serves approximately 780,000 customers in Oklahoma and western Arkansas.

"I was pleased to welcome Mr. Rowlett before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee today," Senator Inhofe said. "A leader in renewable energy development, OG&E serves as a model to energy suppliers across the country. Their commitment to developing renewable energy sources – without federal mandates – has resulted in Oklahoman’s paying some of the lowest electricity rates in the country.

"Therefore, as Congress considers climate legislation that would drasticly increase energy costs, I appreciate hearing OG&E’s concerns about the severe economic impact that this legislation would have on Oklahomans and Americans. While some in Congress rush to impose these financial burdens upon the American people, I remain committed to ensuring Oklahomans continue to be he heard in Washington DC.”
