Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO) hosted 11 community open houses across northern and central Oklahoma to collect valuable landowner and community input on preliminary study segments to help determine a power line route for the Wind Catcher Energy Connection.

However, many residents of Sperry were unaware of the open house held Wednesday, October 25 at The Lodge at Brindle Creek, and are upset with PSO for not publicizing the meeting more efficiently.

“Talking with people in the community about our project is important,” said John Harper, PSO vice president of External Affairs. “It helps us learn information that allows us make better routing decisions, and it gives us a chance to answer questions the community may have.”

PSO and its sister company, Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO), will partner on the project.”

If you have questions or concerns about the project, contact PSO .
