Working in the neighborhood: what has CPS Energy done for you lately?

San Antonio and its surrounding communities continue to grow.

Every day, somewhere in our service territory, CPS Energy crews are working: maintaining transmission lines, poles and gas pipes; building or upgrading neighborhood substations; updating meter technology and keeping power plants running in compliance with federal rules.

Since CPS Energy’s last rate increase, which went into effect in 2010, we’ve completed dozens of projects with the additional revenue. As we ask now for a 4.75 percent increase to fund a new round of infrastructure upgrades and capital projects, we’re creating a series of videos called “Working for your neighborhood” to show you where the money was spent from the last increase.

Each video highlights a particular part of town, and includes the largest projects completed there. Six are complete so far, and we’ll post each new one as it’s done. You can find them all at CPS Energy’s YouTube channel, on our Working in Your Neighborhood page.

CPS Energy’s motto is “We Work for You.” We hope these videos illustrate the important work done every day, across our service territory, that allows us to keep bringing our customers some of the most affordable, reliable power in the country.

Below are videos highlighting the Downtown area, Southeast San Antonio and West San Antonio:
