CPS Energy Issues a RFP for an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Program

CPS Energy


The City of San Antonio, acting by and through its City Public Service Board (“CPS Energy”) issues this global Request for Proposal (“RFP”) for energy efficiency and conservation programs in support of the next phase of its award-winning Save for Tomorrow Energy Plan (“STEP”) program: FlexSTEPSM.

STEP began in 2009 to empower customers to manage their energy through energy efficiency, weatherization, demand response and the adoption of both rooftop and community solar with a goal of saving 771 Megawatts (“MW”). This goal was achieved early and under budget in 2019 with 845 MW in energy savings. In January 2020, the CPS Energy Board of Trustees and the City of San Antonio City Council extended the STEP Bridge program for an additional year with a target of 75 MW in energy savings. In January 2021, the City Council approved an additional extension until July 2022 to allow additional time to recover from COVID-19 related program impacts and continue gathering public and stakeholder input for FlexSTEP.

CPS Energy’s vision for FlexSTEP is to combine the proven and tested, award-winning STEP program with the forward-focused, low-carbon vision of the Flexible PathSM. In advance of this RFP, CPS Energy identified desired programs and technologies by seeking out a broad range of stakeholder and community feedback from multiple points of view and diverse objectives. CPS Energy is expanding the focus of FlexSTEP to include both energy (kilowatt-hour or “kWh”) and demand (kilowatt or “kW”) savings in our targets. In or around the Fall of 2021, CPS Energy plans to seek the CPS Energy Board of Trustees’ and the City of San Antonio City Council’s approval of FlexSTEP.

CPS Energy is soliciting proposals (“Proposals”) from qualified and experienced companies (each a “Respondent”) to provide responses covering multiple energy efficiency and conservation programs (collectively, the “Programs”) separated into two Program sections: Tried and True (“Part A”) and the Innovative and New (“Part B”). These Programs represent key components of CPS Energy’s FlexSTEP, which is intended to be the next step on CPS Energy’s Flexible Path.
