April 24, 2024 (SAN ANTONIO) – Today, CPS Energy announced an upcoming opportunity for the community to apply for the new Community Input Committee (CIC), formerly known as the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC).

CPS Energy is adding four additional community members who live in each of the four CPS Energy Board of Trustees quadrants. The Board will select one member from each of the four quadrants. This will bring the committee from 15 to 19 members.

Additionally, the CIC is seeking to fill an existing seat for an at-large member living outside the San Antonio city limits and within the CPS Energy service territory. Qualifying applicants for this seat must reside in one of the 31 suburban cities or the unincorporated area of Bexar County.  

Applications to become a member of the CIC will open for three weeks beginning on Monday, April 29, 2024, and closing on Friday, May 17, 2024. Those interested in applying can visit the website here beginning Monday.

The CIC will provide feedback to the Board of Trustees and CPS Energy management on key initiatives, as requested by the Board. The CIC will have three subcommittees: Power & Technology; Rates, Finance & Business, and Customer Relations & Communications. Every member will serve on one subcommittee.

Beginning in June, all CIC meetings will be live-streamed for the public to view.  Community members will have the opportunity to sign up for public comment at the beginning of each CIC meeting. Additional information will be updated on the CIC website.
