CPS Energy is thankful for the opportunity to serve and support customers and their families. What better way to show gratitude than by giving back to our community and raising funds for our neighbors in need. How is CPS Energy raising those funds? In true San Antonio style – CPS Energy will host a celebration of meat and music on Saturday, Nov. 23, noon – 6 p.m., called GrillsGiving, at Mission County Park to benefit the REAP utility assistance fund.

REAP was established in 2002 as a partnership between CPS Energy, the City of San Antonio, and Bexar County. This program provides financial assistance to the elderly, medically dependent and low-income families, to help with their energy needs.
