Doyle Beneby, CPS Energy President and CEO, has been named the 2012 Utility CEO of the Year by the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA). Beneby’s leadership in integrating solar energy at CPS has earned him this honor. Beneby’s role in creating a partnership between CPS and OCI Solar power will most likely allow Texas to become one of the top five U.S. solar-producing states.
“The Solar Electric Power Association is pleased to recognize Doyle Beneby as its 2012 Utility CEO of the Year,” said Julia Hamm, SEPA President and CEO. “He understands the importance of integrating solar power into the San Antonio region’s energy mix and we applaud his ongoing commitment to further diversify CPS Energy’s electricity generation.”
