CPS is proposing ten years worth of rate hikes with no clear plan for clean energy and no detailed account for spending. CPS is proposing an initial 7.5% rate increase on your electricity bill and 8.5% on your gas bill!

-Rate hikes will happen every other year for the next 10 years!…for development on the north side, military bases, and unnecessary gas and coal power plants!

-CPS is continuing to pursue Nuclear expansion and spending almost $1 Million dollars a day
on legal fees related to the nuclear expansion, yet they are telling us they have no money!

-ZERO money is going towards clean energy
like solar and wind, or even programs like weatherization, which would improve our homes and decrease waste of electricity!

City Council meeting starts at 9am. We must sign-up before 9am to speak before city council votes to approve or deny the rate hikes. It is listed as the first agenda item of the morning. City Council has set their meetings at times that a lot of community members are unable to attend, if you are unable to make it you can submit a statement online at the following address: http://www.sanantonio.gov/WrittenTestimonyFrm/ccWrittenTestimony.asp.
