Cleco presented St. Tammany Parish Recreation District #11 with a check for $16,273.20 on June 16 to upgrade its sports field lighting through the Cleco’s Power WiseTM energy efficiency program.

The recreation district replaced a total of 128 lights with new LED bulbs. With the new LED lighting, the recreation district — which serves over 400 children participating in soccer, baseball, tee-ball and cheer annually — is projected to save 167,232 kWh annually.

“Helping our community partners reduce their energy usage is what the Power Wise program aims to do across Cleco’s entire service area,” said Jaci Sewell, manager of energy efficiency for Cleco Power. “LED lighting is not only energy efficient, but the lights last longer and shine brighter.”

“The new field lights are like sunshine at night,” said Lisa Palisi, director for St. Tammany Parish Recreation District #11. “There’s a noticeable improvement in the brightness which is also good for safety reasons.”

Power Wise offers financial incentives and other solutions to commercial and residential customers to offset the cost of select energy-efficient upgrades which will help customers save energy.
