Material Supply Issues


CPS Energy worked diligently to help mitigate the global supply chain issues affecting our community.  We worked through shortages of key materials and equipment, including transformers. The impact of the supply chain challenges resulted in extended lead times & delayed deliveries of material, ultimately resulting in current, or expected delays to CPS Energy and customer projects requiring 3-Phase transformers. Last year, to assist our customers during this challenging time, CPS Energy created new programs and processes to help mitigate those challenges.

Please note that CPS Energy expects the underlying conditions impacting the supply of transformers and other materials that can delay projects to continue for the next 3-5 years. Customers should take extended transformer and supply delivery timeframes into account when planning projects. We will continue to keep you informed as we navigate these challenges.
