SaveNow – Save for Tomorrow Energy Plan (STEP)
San Antonio Smart Solutions is proud to be the leader in LED Lighting Retrofits. Our team did more than one third of all lighting projects done in 2020 using CPS Energy funding
STEP provides financial incentives to residential and commercial customers to save energy and reduce electric use. STEP began in 2009 and challenged us to reduce our community’s energy demand by 771 Megawatts (MW) by 2020, which is roughly the equivalent of a large power plant. We exceeded our STEP goal one year ahead of time and under budget.
STEP helped save CPS Energy customers 6.3 Terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity, and over $553 million in savings. In 2019, STEP saved enough energy to power over 104,000 homes, and provided 680 annual jobs.
The STEP Bridge program continues the STEP programs with a goal to reduce an additional 75MW of energy demand during 2020.
Our new 2021 goal is to continue to LEAD this cause! We aim to complete 250 projects this year.
