In 2010, Oklahoma adopted a 15% voluntary renewable energy generation goal by 2015. This goal has not been expanded or extended, which has resulted in a limited number of incentives to encourage solar growth in the state. Oklahoma's net metering program is available to all customers with no limit on the aggregate capacity. The state also offers tax incentives on zero-emission facilities, which indirectly helps solar generation. No solar incentives from utilities have been identified.
As of November 1, 2014, utilities and regulated electric cooperatives can apply to the Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) for approval to charge a fixed fee to customer-generators who install net-metered distributed generation. Utilities and cooperatives are not required to purchase monthly net excess generation from customers. A customer-generator's net excess generation must be provided to the electric cooperative or utility at no charge.
