Alamo Colleges receives $98,222 rebate for Reduced Energy Consumption

The Alamo Colleges received a rebate check for $98,222 from CPS Energy’s Demand Response program for reducing energy consumption during the summer. Mitch Wilson, Director of Facilities Operations accepted on behalf of the District. Participation in the program was identified as an Alamo College strategic initiative and the revenues from the rebate are incorporated into the FY 2013-2014 operating budget. The Demand Response program focuses on reducing overall demand for electricity in San Antonio by paying commercial businesses to use less electricity when energy demand is at its peak. The Alamo Colleges conserved 1,447 kilowatts throughout the summer. Participants earn rebate money for the energy they did not use, reducing the risks of statewide outages and lowering costs for other CPS Energy customers. CPS Energy paid a total of $336,845 to five local school districts, colleges and universities for using less electricity.

Demand Response, a voluntary load curtailment program for commercial and industrial customers, was implemented 17 times this summer. A total of 210 commercial customers reduced a combined 68.2 MW of electricity in CPS Energy’s service territory, or enough power for 17,000 homes. The program is part of CPS Energy’s Save for Tomorrow Energy Plan, which focuses on reducing 771 megawatts of electricity by the year 2020, postponing the need for a new power plant. Demand Response rewards commercial businesses and educational institutions for implementing energy conservation measures. Participants earn money for the amount of energy they are not using, keeping costs low for all CPS Energy customers.

“Providing affordable electricity to our customers is a priority for us,” said Frank Almaraz, CPS Energy’s vice president of corporate development and planning. “Our demand response programs play a vital role in allowing us to achieve that through energy conservation efforts, which delays the expense of a new power plant.”
