  • How do I provide feedback on Project Diamond Vault?

    Please call 1-833-335-2612 or email [email protected]
  • What is the timing for the project?

    The FEED study for Project Diamond Vault has already begun and is expected to be completed by Q2 2024. Construction is expected to begin by the end of 2025, and commercial operation of Project Diamond Vault is planned to occur in 2028.
  • How much will Project Diamond Vault cost?

    Following a successful FEED Study, Cleco Power will work to secure Diamond Vault project funding – expected to be between $1.1 and $1.4 billion – through a combination of Cleco and outside investments.

  • Why is the Project called Diamond Vault?

    It’s a metaphor. Diamonds are precious jewels made deep within the earth. Project Diamond Vault won’t literally make diamonds. But we do believe that gathering and sequestering carbon in geological vaults directly below the Brame Energy Center will have precious value to Cleco, our customers, and the state of Louisiana as a whole.

    To us, the project is a diamond.
