New EPA rules designed to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions from power plants have created a stir--but what would they mean in the San Antonio area?
"CPS Energy supports plans to reduce greenhouse gas emmissions. We have aggressive targets in terms of diversifying our fleet--and reducing our carbon footprint" said CPS Energy Executive Vice-President Chris Eugster. He said the utility has been working on a plan for the future--focusing in large part on what that plan will mean for it's workforce.
"Those jobs will basically transition to new energy economy jobs. Instead of working in a coal plant, you might be working in a natural gas plant--or even a solar farm. We have a wholke workforce planned around transitioning our workforce to the future" Eugster said.
