About Will Power:
Every day, the CPS Energy family of highly dedicated, well-trained professional linemen tackles a variety of dangerous tasks to keep the lights on in the San Antonio community. Some stock the insulated trucks to keep them ready for any and everyday situations, from freezing rain to mid-summer thunderstorms. Others climb poles during 100-degree heat and raging weather, wearing layers of heavy, uncomfortable but protective clothing. Dozens more work on underground lines, as transmission specialists and general trouble shooters. Will Schneider, is one of those linemen. He joined CPS Energy almost three decades ago, just out of Navarro High School in Geronimo, Texas, after a short stint at Bexar Electric.
“Will Power” chronicles Will as he works high above San Antonio. “When you work at such heights it’s hard not to be taken with the grand perspective made possible — great sights all around,” Mr. Schneider shared. “It’s challenging and rewarding.” From daily life-threatening hazards and his family-ties to his team of coworkers, known as the brotherhood—learn more about a leader that steps out everyday for love of community.
