DALLAS - With energy prices soaring to record levels, San Antonio will market $290 million of revenue bonds for a coal-fired plant and other projects that will help diversify power sources for the city's CPS Energy utility.

The bonds, expected to price June 5, are part of a five-year, $5.2 billion, capital improvement plan that is updated annually. CPS plans to issue $240 million in September to fund the balance of construction through April 2009, and $450 million in 2010 for various projects. The utility also expects to offer a natural gas prepay bond issue sometime this year.
