In the search for a new Trustee, the person will be selected from Quadrant 1, which encompasses the northwest part of the energy company’s service area. See the blue highlighted area on the map. Trustee Edward Kelley currently serves on the Board from 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.
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.
