Energy Efficient Lighting Comes to Pocatello Community Recreation Center

Pocatello Community Recreation Center

The light inside Pocatello’s Community Recreation Center is about to be greener. This week, crews are beginning the process of upgrading the facility’s existing lighting fixtures to light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Funded in part by an Idaho Power incentive, the updated fixtures are estimated to save over 78,010 kilowatt hours of electricity and $4,432.03 per year. “We’d like to thank Idaho Power for helping to make the Community Recreation Center more environmentally friendly,” said John Banks, Parks and Recreation Director. “While there is a cost up front, this is a proactive step for the City and the management of the facility.” The total bill for the project is $29,555.10. The City will pay $17,195.98 while the Idaho Power incentive will cover the remaining $12,359.12. According to the company, the project will be paid back in approximately 4 years.
