Renewable Energy


In 2010, the City adopted its Mission Verde (Mission Green) initiative to transform the city’s energy practices and make it a hub for sustainable technology and green jobs. The initiative is based on one simple principle: meet the needs of today without compromising the possibility of future San Antonians to meet their own needs.
 
The City is aggressively committed to constructing of the region’s green credentials and city-owned utility CPS Energy made a commitment to add 1,500 megawatts of renewable energy capacity by 2020.

As a result of that commitment, it brokered a deal to construct not only the world’s largest solar installation, but also manufacturing facilities, education programs, and R&D activities that will make the city a hub of renewable production and research in North America.
 
Companies from Europe and Asia have already lined up to become part of the local supply chain, bringing jobs, investment, and global expertise. Education programs and research at Alamo Colleges, UTSA, and other local schools are developing the workforce needed by companies that want to be at the forefront of the industry.
