CPS ENERGY’S PRESIDENT & CEO LAUNCHES COMMUNITY INPUT ON THE NEW “POWER BUNDLEFLEX”

San Antonio, TX – July 10, 2019 – Today, CPS Energy President & CEO, Paula Gold-Williams announced another step in the company’s Flexible Path, called the Power BundleFlex.  As the foundation, the Flexible Path was previously introduced by Gold-Williams in early 2018 to the CPS Energy Board of Trustees and at that point the executive team launched an extensive education and public comment program. The program included comments and dialogue with customers, businesses, civic leaders, educators and administrators, associations and chambers, environmentalists, credit ratings agencies, and other interested stakeholders.  Importantly, the initially proposed Power BundleFlex will be accompanied by a new round of exploratory public engagement.     

Broadly, the Flexible Path is a fresh, strategic approach that the CPS Energy executive team is using to thoughtfully discover, explore and implement new power generation solutions over the next 20 years and beyond.  It is a straightforward framework that is helping CPS Energy conceptualize how to skillfully manage its existing assets, while incrementally and purposefully transitioning to newer power generation technologies.  Along the way, the executive team continues to prudently balance security, safety, reliability, resilience, the environment, and affordability. 

The Power BundleFlex is a “blended energy approach” through which CPS Energy will consider adding more incremental capacity.  The following represents the general framework / components of the Power BundleFlex:

“The Power BundleFlex is a diversified solution set that recognizes today’s renewables alone cannot support all of the community’s customers consistently and reliably, 24/7/365.  Prudently, it is a generation package that will ensure the community can move forward, while maximizing the existing community-owned generation assets, which are powered by gas, coal, solar, wind and nuclear sources,” said Paula Gold-Williams, President & CEO of CPS Energy.  “Both the Flexible Path and the Power BundleFlex will help our community move closer to a practical and cleaner energy footprint.”

Based on our previous outreach successes, CPS Energy will again seek opportunities to speak to a broad array of stakeholders. Helpful information will be posted online, including today’s addition of a new survey tool located at cpsenergy.com/flexpath. While it is very short, it will provide good preliminary feedback.  CPS Energy will also make this quick survey, and other key information, available at our People First! Community Fairs and at its Customer Service Centers. Additionally, the company will provide the responses to the survey on a periodic basis.

Over the last 159 years, CPS Energy has been, and will continue to be, a utility industry leader that has a solid list of accomplishments that have brought increased value to its customers and community.  Below is a summarized list of a few of those accomplishments and milestones.

    More programs like Big Sun should be made available to those homeowners that could use the affordability of energy along with other energy-efficient sources. Solar power that can be provided from remote farms or carport locations are more attractive to homeowners rather than roof-installed panels. Pilot programs for certain neighborhoods would definitely begin the process and help to promote this innovative service. Continuous research into the latest energy-producing technology would certainly put San Antonio on the map as a city of the future.

    Since Nov. 2018, I have reported a problem with a street light at: 13746 Pebble Oak, as of last night, it is still out. My name is: Ben Gomez (2307 Stoney Trail Circle) phone # 210-332-0272. I have spoken to vairious rep. at CPS about this ongoing problem with this corner street light. Time and time again I am told that a work order has been issued to get this repaired, I have been in contact with the subcontractor that replaces the bulbs on street lights for CPS and he even told CPS that the problem is with the wiring inside the pole itself. I also mentioned this to every rep. that I have spoken to over months. Just last week I was told that the city of SA has to issue a work permit in order for CPS to do anytype of work on this street light. Why wasn’t a work permit request issued to the city way back at the beginning of this report? Someone at CPS is not doing their work, or they should have realized that the city needed to ge involved. I spoke to Dora Rodriquez (210-353-8879 ext 10362) today and I expressed my frustration on how this has been handled, I also asked it I could have Ms Williams phone number or if I could leave her a message and she told me that there is no way to get in touch with her or leave a message! I find this very hard to believe, but in eithercase: I hope and pray that this message will reach her desk and that someone can call me back. I’m just a little guy trying to make my neighborhood a little safer at night.
