JACKSON, Tenn.- One of Jackson's major industrial leaders is being rewarded for its energy saving efforts.

Carlisle Transportation is getting more than $225,500 in an incentive check from TVA for making energy efficient lighting changes.

Jackson Energy Authority and TVA worked with Carlisle to replace old lighting in the company's production and office areas with new fixtures offering both improved lighting and energy savings.

The new lighting is expected to save Carlisle more than $130,700 on their annual utility bill.

The TVA program encourages reductions in electric energy intensity in large industrial facilities having greater than 5 megawatts of demand.
