Applications are now available to serve in the northwest area of the CPS Energy service area. Eligible residents are invited to apply.
July 13, 2021 (SAN ANTONIO) – CPS Energy has started a search for a new Board of Trustee. This is an important role as this five-member Board works together to oversee the strategies and policies of the utility’s electric and natural gas systems.
Importantly, every Board Member works to support the company’s customers who reside across its formal 1,500-mile service area. That area covers Bexar County and parts of seven surrounding counties. To obtain better geographic coverage and clarity, the Board selection process is aligned to four quadrants across Bexar County.
In the search for a new Trustee, the person will be selected from Quadrant 1. See the blue highlighted area on the map. Trustee Edward Kelley currently resides in Quadrant 1. His final term as a Trustee will end on January 31, 2022.
Each of the four Trustees can serve two five-year terms. Additionally, the Board’s fifth member is the Mayor of San Antonio, who serves as an ex-officio member. This is important, as the City of San Antonio owns CPS Energy.
Aligned to Quadrant 1’s geographic area are San Antonio City Council Districts 7 and 8 and portions of Districts 1, 6, and 9. Residents can find out which CPS Energy quadrant they reside in by entering their address on CPS Energy’s website.
Members of the Board must be United States citizens. Except for the Mayor, each Trustee receives annual compensation of $2,000. Regular meetings are typically held on the last Monday of each month at 1 p.m. in the company’s Board Room on the first floor of its headquarters, located at 500 McCullough Ave, San Antonio, TX 78215.
Additional time requirements for the Trustees include special board meetings, quarterly committee meetings, and, as needed, group and individual work sessions along with public input sessions and various other events. The application for this Board position can be accessed online at www.cpsenergy.com/trustees or obtained at the CPS Energy Headquarters. For more information, call (210) 353-3212 or email [email protected].
An applicant information session will be held in August of this year. The deadline for application submissions will be Wednesday, August 31, 2021, at 5:00 p.m.
