Almost three-quarters of the 11,280 panels that make up the 1.2 megawatt solar farm in Adkins, Texas have already been reserved by commercial and residential CPS Energy customers, officials said Monday.
Myra Garcia fills a room with positive energy.
As CPS Energy prepares to roll out a new pilot program aimed at covering as many customer rooftops with solar panels as possible, local solar industry professionals have formed the San Antonio Solar Alliance (SASA), a nonprofit interest group that aims to stall the program’s contract negotiations.
CPS Energy has issued a request for proposals for one megawatt (MW) of solar power – small solar potatoes when compared to several projects, ranging in size from 4 MW to 300 MW, under contract with OCI Solar Power.
In a statement released Friday morning, CPS Energy outlined a preliminary plan to introduce a pilot rooftop leasing and community solar plan to future solar customers in San Antonio – possibly at no cost to the customer.
