CPS Energy has played games for too long. Despite repeated requests during the climate planning process, the utility failed to make plans to phase out coal and natural gas energy. Now CPS Energy CEO Paula Gold-Williams says the utility won’t move forward with procuring additional solar energy unless it also contracts for another large natural gas power plant. (More background is available here.)
What we’re asking for is simple: The utility should issue an all-source request for proposals (RFP). Instead of picking winners and losers up front, this strategy will allow all energy sources to compete on an even playing field to meet the needs of the utility and its customers. The likely result would be clean, renewable energy sources that would provide the lowest cost energy for all CPS Energy customers.
We need you to reach out to the CPS Energy Board of Trustees now.

Thank you for emailing the CPS Energy Board of Trustees, including Mayor Nirenberg, to ask the utility to allow clean energy to compete against fossil fuels for the utility's business.
