Low Rates for Business & Industry

The economic success of businesses in SLEMCO’s service area is very important to us.

SLEMCO’s kWh cost for commercial and industrial customers is approximately 28% less than the national average. This makes SLEMCO one of the least expensive electric providers in the nation and among the lowest cost electric providers in the State of Louisiana. Low-cost electric rates, along with state economic development incentives, such as Industrial Tax Exemption, Quality Jobs payroll rebates, and the nation’s #1 workforce training program, LED FastStart, make the SLEMCO service area a great location for doing business.

For prospective businesses and industries, SLEMCO offers fully staffed, in-house engineering and operations departments. Load requirements are analyzed and new facilities, including new substations or transmission lines, are designed and constructed to meet the power needs of companies planning to locate within SLEMCO’s service area.

For electric service proposals, assistance with site locations, or with navigating state economic development incentives, contact Jody Soileau, CLED, Business Development Specialist, at 337-896-2511.
