CPS Energy’s Board of Trustees is hosting a public input session to receive feedback from customers about a proposed rate increase that, if approved by the San Antonio City Council, would take effect in February 2014.
The proposed increase of 4.75 percent would go largely to capital projects and infrastructure upgrades and would mean an additional $5.19 for a customer using the average 1,100 kilowatt hours (kWh) per month.
Board members and senior management will be at the session, scheduled for Mon., Sept. 9 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the TriPoint Grantham Center, 3233 N. St. Mary’s St.
Those who wish to speak must register at the event between 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Speaking time for each registered speaker will be three minutes, or up to nine minutes if the participant speaks on behalf of two others, who must also register.
Customers can learn more about the proposed rate increase, and ways to make their homes more energy efficient to lower the impact, at any one of the Customer Care Fairs being held in various locations through Oct. 9. The next one is Thurs., Sept. 5 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Miller’s Pond Community Center, 5102 Pearsall Rd.
