Alternative Energy

Tulsa is home to a variety of mostly small companies engaged in various aspects of the burgeoning alternative energy industry. From wind to solar to biomass, as well as innovative approaches to energy conservation and usage, Tulsa is attracting its share of “new players” in what many hail as a new era of energy.

Energy is Oklahoma," Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett Jr., said. "Our state was founded on the energy industry. Now the door is wide open for the City of Tulsa to lead Oklahoma into the future with energy initiatives and projects that address sustainability."

Tulsa Energy Now will feature some of Tulsa's Alternative Energy Industry companies in this section.  We encourage Tulsa area energy entrepreneurs to contact us about their companies. This list, which will be updated regularly, features only a few of the companies engaged in renewables, conservation and other sustainability initiatives in Tulsa.

Tulsa Gas Technologies was founded in 1991 by Tulsans Tom and Charles Sewell.  TGT builds high-quality CNG fueling dispensers from parts made in-house, installs CNG fueling stations for contract clients, and performs vehicle conversions.  TGT designs, busilds, installs, and services CNG equipment and has on-going projects located throughout the world.

The Covanta Tulsa Energy-from-Waste Facility began commercial operation in 1986. The facility processes 1,125 tons-per-day of solid waste, generating up to 240,000 pounds-per-hour of steam. The steam can be used to power a turbine generator to produce 16.8 megawatts of clean, renewable energy that is sold to Public Service Company of Oklahoma. However, on a more regular basis, the steam is sold to HollyFrontier, Inc. and used in the refining process. This offsets the need for the refinery to use fossil fuels to generate their own steam.
