CPS Energy’s Save for Tomorrow Energy Plan (STEP) aims at reducing the growth in our community’s demand for electricity by 771 megawatts (MW) by 2020 -- that’s the output of a large power plant.
We’re investing to meet this goal, focusing on these key objectives:
- Encourage residents to purchase energy-efficient appliances
- Increase the use of energy efficient lighting and programmable thermostats
- Improve residential insulation use, as well as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems
- Increase commercial lighting retrofits, encourage use of energy-efficient, commercial HVAC systems and offer other energy-saving commercial programs
