Costs continue to make energy efficiency programs less popular. Despite that, CPS Energy's Save for Tomorrow Energy Program (STEP) has been extended for another five years. The energy efficiency program in San Antonio has saved about 1,000 megawatts in demand since it began in 2009. Based on those results, interim CEO, Rudy Garza considers the program a major success that should be extended. The board’s newest trustee, Francine Romero believes even more should be done to combat climate change and that CPS should take the lead in energy conservation. However, costs continue to be a concern. Retired board member, Ed Kelley opposed the STEP program, saying it was “throwing away” millions on “ridiculousness.”
