“Improving the energy efficiency of your home is much easier to do than most people realize,” said Jaci Sewell, manager of Cleco’s Power Wise™ energy efficiency program. “Our easy-to-use programs are designed to help residential customers reduce their energy usage and reduce stress on the electric grid during peak times of energy use.”
The following Cleco Power Wise programs can help residential customers become more energy efficient in 2022.
