sPower Donation to Help Fund Lighting of Water Tower in Coolidge, Arizona

sPower, a leading renewable energy Independent Power Producer (IPP), is pleased to donate $10,000 toward the installation of LED lighting on the historic Arizona Water Company water tower, located in downtown Coolidge, Arizona. The City of Coolidge plans to have a lighting ceremony in time for the Christmas Electric Light Parade in early December 2019. This project will be similar to the Gilbert Water Tower project, which is a sister to the water tower in Coolidge (www.gilbertaz.gov/residents/gilbert-water-tower-lighting). Colorful light displays will be used to recognize events such as holidays, and honorariums for veterans, first-responders, cancer awareness, etc.
