SAN ANTONIO, March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- CityNAP, San Antonio's first carrier neutral Network Access Point (NAP,) fulfills 100% of its energy needs using CPS Energy Windtricity. The partnership between CPS Energy and CityNAP now makes CityNAP the first 100% green-energy supplied Data Center in Texas, and one of just a few in the county.

"It's something that we've discussed from the beginning, as centers such as ours are very necessary but consume a great deal of power.
