Mayor Julian Castro calls CNN solar story misleading

By Paul Venema


San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro had some harsh words for a CNN report Monday.

Referring to a report that aired on Friday on CNN’s “Erin Burnett: Outfront,” Castro said it was the “most inaccurate report that I’ve ever seen regarding anything that San Antonio has done in public policy.”

The report examined City Public Service’s deal with OCI Solar to bring hundreds of jobs to San Antonio.

In the report, reporter Ted Rowlands said that the city has decided to send hundreds of millions of dollars in profits to South Korea rather that keep the money in the United States.

Castro noted that while OCI Solar’s parent company is based in South Korea, the company’s solar energy headquarters is in San Antonio.
