Shine a Light Project

At PSO, we see ourselves as more than just a utility company. We view our community as more than just our customers.

That’s why we’re always seeking ways to make a difference in our neighbors’ lives. The Shine a Light Project partners with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to provide assistance to families in need.

Shining a Light on Food Insecurity

Since 2014, the Shine a Light Project has partnered with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to help families in need lighten their financial load. Here’s how it works: Each year PSO donates energy-efficient LED light bulbs to our food bank partners to help families save money on their utility bills — money they could use to help feed their families.

What Are the Benefits?

Providing a Ray of Hope for Oklahomans in Need

PSO has donated over 750,000 energy-efficient bulbs since 2014. The amount of energy saved from this program has reached approximately 16 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) annually — the equivalent to the total energy use of over 1,200 homes.
