CPS Energy will phase out coal, close Spruce plant
January 24, 2023
Before the end of the decade, the electricity powering San Antonio’s homes and businesses won’t rely on a polluting coal plant. But CPS Energy isn’t committing to all renewables just yet.
The city-owned utility’s board voted 4-1 yesterday to choose a new portfolio of future energy sources that will shutter the coal-fired J.K. Spruce 1 plant by the end of 2028. CPS will convert the Spruce 2 coal plant to run on natural gas.
