CPS Energy needs a sanity check. CEO Paula Gold-Williams presented an update of her Flexible Path plan to the CPS Energy Board of Trustees on August 26. The plan showed the utility burning coal at the Spruce 2 power plant until at least 2060.
Burning coal for another 40 years is a sure way to help transform the climate crisis into a full-blown global climate catastrophe.
The San Antonio City Council just adopted a climate action and adaptation plan for the city on October 17. That’s good, but burning coal isn't compatible with climate action.
CPS Energy’s commitment to coal is especially bizarre in the context of a recent analysis by Synapse Energy Economics showing that CPS Energy could save its customers an estimated $85 million per year – for a total of at least $1 billion over 15 years – by replacing the coal-burning Spruce power plant with a combination of solar, wind and energy storage.
Tell the CPS Energy Board of Directors, Mayor Ron Nirenberg and the San Antonio City Council that you expect a plan to replace coal with cheaper renewable energy.
