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.
