DALLAS — San Antonio’s CPS Energy will remain a formal partner in expansion plans for the South Texas Project nuclear plant, even though major investor NRG Energy has backed out and the project is at a standstill.

Despite the city-owned utility’s previous attempts to quit the project, it will retain a 7.6% stake in the coalition known as Nuclear Innovation North America. NINA was created to add two reactors to the existing two at the STP plant in Bay City, 90 miles south of Houston.
