Jun 6, 2022
Company shares what customers can turn off to stop wasting energy

PINEVILLE, La. – June 6, 2022 – Cleco’s energy-savings campaign, Watt Matters, is a five-part series on residential programs and individual actions customers can take to use less energy and lower their monthly bills.

Turn It Off! is the second focus area of the campaign and informs customers what they can turn off to increase their energy savings.

It follows the first focus area, Replace It! which educated customers on the benefits of replacing outdated appliances and devices for those that are more energy efficient, including room air conditioners, pool pumps and smart thermostats.

Each topic is promoted in three-week increments. For the next three weeks, Cleco will encourage customers to turn off lights and appliances when not in use, including televisions, fans, laptops, tablets, cell phones and game consoles.

“Growing up, when I left a light on in an empty room, my dad would say ‘turn off that light,’” said Andre Guillory, vice president and chief customer officer. “My dad was right. Simple habits like turning off lights when you leave a room can lower your energy costs.”
