Computer maker has announced plans to power its 240,000 square-foot Oklahoma City campus with 100 percent wind energy.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Dell Inc. has announced plans to power its 240,000 square-foot Oklahoma City campus with 100 percent wind energy.

Dell Oklahoma City's senior manager of the environment Chris Scully says the move should reduce the facility's carbon dioxide emissions by 5,100 tons per year.

The company announced the deal with OG&E Monday as part of a plan to reduce its worldwide facilities' greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent by 2015.

OG&E officials say Dell is among the first large businesses in the area to be powered entirely with renewable energy.
