Electricity & Natural Gas
Data centers that typically have high power demands are known to come to Windcrest/San Antonio because of the advantages in cost and availability of power.
CPS Energy, the nation’s largest municipally owned, vertically integrated utility provider, supplies Windcrest with electricity and natural gas services. CPS Energy has been serving San Antonio and its surrounding communities for over 75 years, including over 820,000 electricity customers and over 345,000 natural gas customers.
Keeping up with utility demands during Texas summers is no small task. But CPS has a tried and true record of meeting San Antonio’s energy needs thanks to its diverse power generation that includes coal, natural gas, nuclear, solar, and wind energy. Their highly reliable power plants also have a considerable reserve capacity and CPS consistently adds more companies to their energy-saving demand response reduction program. Sound planning and operational excellence contribute to their ability to provide dependable service and affordable energy.
Especially for commercial customers, CPS offers programs like the Commercial Solutions program to help identify energy-saving opportunities and provide resources and incentives for energy-efficient upgrades. All this comes together to mean the lowest rates around that save money for Windcrest businesses. Please visit the CPS Energy website for more information.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), is a stable, efficient, and independent power grid for Texas businesses and consumers. ERCOT provides power for 90% of Texans and yet maintains a strong power reserve through highly reliable natural gas, coal, and nuclear plants as well as the renewable energy sources of wind and solar. As an independent agency, ERCOT is not subject to federal regulation and operates more efficiently.
