CPS Energy Calaveras Power Station
The CPS Energy Calaveras Power Station, home to four coal-fired units, is located southeast of San Antonio in Bexar County, Texas. The coal units are members of a diverse CPS Energy generation fleet, which also consist of nuclear, gas, solar and wind.
Since the early 1990s, CPS Energy has recycled more than seven million tons of coal combustion residuals (CCRs), or coal ash. Recycling coal ash to create concrete significantly reduces the amount of cement that must be manufactured, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions generated during the cement production process.
CPS Energy recognizes and supports responsible handling of CCRs and intends to meet or exceed the requirements of the CCR rules. If you have questions or desire further information, please provide your information in the link provided here.
The six units relevant to the CCR rules are the following:
- North and South SRH Ponds
- North and South Bottom Ash Ponds
- Fly Ash Landfill
- Evaporation Pond
