OPPD customers who want to generate their own energy have increased options for doing so starting Sept. 1.

On June 28, 2021, OPPD received its 500thcustomer-owned generation(COG) interconnection application. This was the 165th application received so far this year, which is on track to be a 500% increase in interconnection applications over last year.
