Filthy water spews from a pipe the diameter of a baseball into what looks like a storage container. CPS Energy is capping this artesian well--the last of four--that used to feed the adjacent gas-fired power plant.

CPS Energy is rolling out a new program aimed at giving people more options for customer's energy consumption. Aimed at providing solar programs for people who may have inadequate roofs or those who don't own their homes, the program consists of a larger solar farm where people could purchase a solar panel and be guaranteed the energy produced for 25 years.

Lanny Sinkin's time at Solar San Antonio, and in San Antonio all together, is coming to an end. From 2009 onward, Sinkin has been running the solar advocacy nonprofit his father started 15 years ago. His return to San Antonio from Hawaii was precipitated by his mother Faye passing away. His father, community organizer, William Sinkin, passed away this year.
