“As we celebrate our 80th anniversary as a community-owned utility, we are excited to give back by powering San Antonio Zoo Lights for the next three years,” said Rudy D. Garza, President& CEO of CPS Energy.

“When you are walking around the zoo you will see miles of LED lights. Using LED lights is one of the many ways you can make our community bright, help conserve energy, and save money this holiday season. We look forward to celebrating the season and sharing more helpful tips through our partnership with the San Antonio Zoo.”

Zoo Lights, powered by CPS Energy, is decked with environmentally friendly holiday lights.

More than 95 percent of the lights are LED, making them energy efficient. By using LED lights, the zoo uses a fraction of the electricity required for conventional incandescent lights. LEDs use about 75 to 90 percent less power than traditional lights, and each bulb has a longer life. The zoo encourages people to switch to LED lights to save energy, which has a more positive impact on the environment.

Tickets to Zoo Lights, powered by CPS Energy, are FREE for Members and included with Standard Admission to San Antonio Zoo.
