Iberia Medical Center Receives Check from Cleco for Lighting Upgrades

Tuesday, October 12, 2021

Today, Cleco presented Iberia Medical Center with a check in the amount of $8,171 for upgrading its lighting through the company’s Power WiseTM energy efficiency program.

Iberia Medical Center installed light emitting diode (LED) lighting across both its campus parking lots, most recently completing the installation of LEDs in the North campus parking lot. With the new LED lighting, Iberia is projected to save 81,710 kWh annually.

 Cleco’s Power Wise program offers financial incentives and other solutions to commercial and residential customers to offset the cost of making certain energy-efficient upgrades and help them save energy.

”Partnering with our customers to help them manage their energy use is how we help our communities thrive,” said Jaci Sewell, manager of energy efficiency at Cleco Power. “Retrofitting traditional lights with brighter and longer-lasting bulbs reduces energy consumption. LEDs also are more visually appealing.”

“Our new LED lighting is far superior to the previous lighting,” said Dionne Viator, Iberia Medical Center CEO. “A well-lighted parking area is critically important to the safety of our patients, staff, visitors and physicians.”
