CPS is set to name solar plant selection; 400-megawatt facility by OCI will mean 800 jobs.
CPS Energy is expected to announce today that OCI Solar Power, whose parent is a South Korean chemical company, has been selected to build 400 megawatts of solar power and bring more than 800 jobs to San Antonio, sources close to the deal say.
CPS Energy on Tuesday would not confirm the identity of the company, which it will announce at an 11 a.m. news conference. A call to OCI Solar Power, headquartered in Atlanta, was not immediately returned.
