It has been over two and a half years since the San Antonio Climate Action and Adaptation Plan was adopted and there is still no plan to get the city’s own electric utility to stop burning coal. CPS Energy doesn’t seem to get that the climate crisis actually is a crisis. That’s why we need to act now, not in a few decades.
CPS Energy is gearing up to request a rate increase, which requires San Antonio City Council approval. The City Council must demand that the utility commit to shut down the Spruce coal plant by 2030 and participate in an open public process to develop a full clean energy transition plan before approving any rate increase.
Email the San Antonio City Council now.

While we're not targeting your representatives, many of your friends and family will likely be able to impact this legislation.
Thank you for emailing the San Antonio City Council to ask them to lead on climate action by setting a retirement date for San Antonio's Spruce coal plant by 2030. We need your help to build pressure for Council to act. If you'd like to get more involved, please email Public Citizen's climate justice organizer, DeeDee Belmares at firstname.lastname@example.org.
