SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 13, 2022) — "Today, with the expectation that the CPS rate increase would pass on City Council, our office will be asking CPS and SAWS to work with their boards, their advisory committees , and City Staff to consider a CPS and SAWS rate freeze for seniors age 65 and over and persons with disabilities, with special consideration for disabled veterans. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated deep economic struggle for our most cost-burdened communities, especially in District 2. It is our seniors and persons with disabilities, including veterans, who are among the most vulnerable. Implementation of this policy will ensure these families will be protected from added economic burdens in the future."

Councilman McKee-Rodriguez has consistently expressed the urgent need for CPS Energy to build trust by addressing the inequities in its rate structure, creating a specific timeline for the closure of the Spruce Coal Power Plant, and in re-establishing a moratorium on CPS Energy disconnections of ratepayers during the pandemic.
From the dais, the Councilman expressed, "Change moves at the speed of trust." Unfortunately, CPS Energy did not adequately address these concerns, and this further erodes the public's trust. Without these requests being fully satisfied, Councilman McKee-Rodriguez voted against the CPS Energy increase today.
The Councilman asks city staff to analyze the fiscal impact of this proposed rate freeze policy and to coordinate with citizen advisory committees at both utility companies for implementation to protect San Antonians in need. Additionally, the District 2 office has made a commitment moving forward to work with CPS Energy to improve communication with our residents in hopes that we can achieve a publicly-owned utility that is truly accountable to the public.
