Westenergie supports the municipality of Lieser with a funding program
The local community of Lieser is driving forward climate protection on its own doorstep. Together with Westenergie, the municipality is now presenting the St. Petrus day-care center in Lieser in an energy-efficient manner with modern LED interior lighting. In all rooms of the old and new building, numerous new lights now ensure a contemporary and environmentally friendly appearance. On site, Mayor Jochen Kiesgen was able to get an impression of the modern lighting technology with the day-care center staff and representatives from Westenergie.
With the company’s own support program KEK, municipal energy concept, Westenergie supports the municipality of Lieser with a subsidy of around 1,900 euros in saving energy. The total cost of the modernization is over 3,200 euros. “With the new, longer-lasting LED technology, we not only relieve the community’s budget, but also protect the environment. This is another important contribution by the municipality to climate protection,” stated Mayor Kiesgen. “The contemporary modernization also better illuminates the rooms in the day-care center.”
As a result of the conversion, the municipality expects to be able to operate the lighting with significantly less energy in comparison to the lights that have been removed. This will significantly reduce the day-care center’s electricity costs.
Westenergie offers municipalities that have a concession contract with the energy company the “KEK – Municipal Energy Concept” funding program. It includes solutions and products with which municipalities are getting fit for the energy future. Measures in the areas of climate protection, energy efficiency and infrastructure are funded. This includes, for example, increasing the energy efficiency of municipal buildings and facilities or concepts for electromobility.
