CPS Energy’s offices, customer service centers and call center will be closed Monday, January 21 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  During the closure, customers can report natural gas or electric emergencies by calling 210-353-HELP (4357) or 1-800-870-1006 24/7. Social media channels will be monitored for urgent issues.

Landfill Gas

 

We receive renewable energy from, believe it or not, two local landfills in the form of methane gas.

The Covel Gardens landfill (9.6 MW) and the Nelson Gardens Landfill (4.2 MW; a closed landfill) provide nearly 14 MW of renewable power, derived from decomposing wastes that create various gases, including methane.

The gases are cleaned, compressed and turned into fuel, which drives generators to create electricity. That electricity is then fed into CPS Energy’s distribution system, and eventually makes its way to customers.
