On February 18th the Alliance for Affordable Energy hosted three Town Hall meetings to inform people about the risks involved in the proposed Cleco sale.

Background : Cleco Power, the oldest of Louisiana’s major electric utility companies, is the target of a private equity takeover bid by a group of foreign own investment funds. The offer is a bad deal for Louisiana, as it leverages an enormous amount of debt for the takeover, allows executives and shareholders to walk away with millions, and leaves customers to pay down the debt.
