DURANT, Okla. (April 12, 2010) – Choctaw Chief Gregory E. Pyle signs a contract with OG&E as Assistant Chief Gary Batton looks on. The contract, which goes into effect at the end of April, allows the Choctaw Nation to get all its energy from wind power. Using wind power will cost the Choctaw Nation about $15,000 more per year. “We’re investing in the protection of our future and our resources and that’s something you can’t put a price tag on,” said Assistant Chief Gary Batton.
