Join Us at the CPS Energy Public Input Session to Demand the Utility Stop Burning Coal and Transition to Renewable Energy
In March, CPS Energy rolled out its “Flexible Path” energy plan. The plan shows which energy sources CPS Energy would rely on as time goes by and – shockingly – shows that the city-owned utility plans to burn coal for electricity production until at least 2042.
That’s a shockingly irresponsible proposal in the face of escalating climate change, especially given that San Antonio air is so polluted that even Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency says it is unhealthy.
Public Citizen and our partners have been calling on CPS Energy to develop a new plan — one that includes an end to burning coal by 2025 and the phasing out of all fossil fuels for electricity production by 2030.
So far, the utility hasn’t changed its plan. That’s why we need people to show up and speak out at this public input session.
WHAT: Public input session on CPS Energy's future energy plan
WHEN: 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27
WHERE: Villita Assembly Building (401 Villita St)
Complimentary parking at Navarro St Garage (126 Navarro), but we encourage you to take the bus!
We’ll be there with talking points and will help you practice your statement if you want help, but your comments don’t have to be based on professional or technical expertise. You can share your values, your concern for your health or that of a loved one, or your desire to preserve a livable planet for future generations.
Come share what moves you to care about reducing pollution. This is your chance to be heard.
