COLLEGE STATION, Texas – CPS Energy, the largest municipally-owned energy company in the U.S., has selected SynchroGrid, an innovative and forward-thinking engineering firm, to perform system protection and EPS metering services for a 3-year term.
During these 3 years, SynchroGrid will provide professional consulting services for a wide range of system protection projects, which could include creating system protection design packages, developing relay settings, performing coordination studies, working with digital substations, and providing project management services.
System protection is a critical area of the power system and requires engineers to maintain astute attention to detail to ensure reliable services.

“We are grateful for this opportunity to work with CPS Energy and are excited to work alongside their team,” says Joe Perez, president of SynchroGrid. “We have a great appreciation for the many team members required of a utility to ‘keep the lights on,’ and we look forward to contributing our services as a piece of this process, allowing us to serve the residents of the greater San Antonio area.”
