Participating in the 2nd Annual Construction Conference aligns with CPS Energy’s People First commitment to Supplier Development. We are neighbors, we care, and we want to help. We can’t guarantee a contract, but we want to give suppliers great opportunities!
The relationship between CPS Energy’s Supply Chain business and our customers is unique. We recognize that many owners or employees of our suppliers are also our residential customers. We care about our community on every level, so we are always looking for ways to partner with our suppliers, while never losing sight of the fact that they may also be our customers.
