SWEPCO invests in Oklahoma wind farm

Kyle Massey at Arkansas Business reports here on a plan by Southwestern Electric Power, which provides electricity in western Arkansas, to invest more than $3 billion in an Oklahoma facility that uses wind power to generate electricity.

This is yet another significant move by the company's parent, AEP, to move away from coal, which dominated the company's generating for years.

Gotta wonder what coal's best friend, Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, will say about this in the required proceedings before the Arkansas Public Service Commission. And what about Sens. Tom Cotton and John Boozman, opponents of the Clean Line project to move wind power from Oklahoma through Arkansas?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
