Utilities

CLECO serves the majority of businesses and residents in Mansfield.  If a large industrial project wished to locate, the lines would be increased to serve that project.  There are some basic rates for households but a profitability study by CLECO’s commercial division would work with the client and possibly enter into some sort of long term contract.  Prices for electricity are related to fuel costs and vary from month to month.

CLECO has a substation on US Hwy 84 and a main power plant on state Hwy 175 south of Mansfield. 

Atmos Energy Gas CoThe main line system throughout the town consists of primarily 2” piping.  The current pressure being delivered at this time is 21 psi.  This pressure could be increased if the need arose.  Atmos would have to conduct engineering flow studies to determine the need.  A residential customer is currently charged $500 for a property line tap and if additional pipe needs to be installed they will calculate additional charges depending on the circumstances.  The cost of natural gas is based on their purchase price.  This cost is passed on to the customers.  Natural gas is a commodity and prices vary from month to month depending on availability and demand.  Their profits are derived from collecting a monthly minimum service charge of $12.70.  If an extremely large gas consumer was to establish here, a profitability study would be done and they may be able to lock in a yearly contractual price.  This would be handled by Atmos’ industrial marketing department.  Gulf South pipeline is the transmission company Atmos purchases from.  Gulf South has a 20” or 24” pipeline approximately 5 to 8 miles from Grand Cane.  Any business requiring an upgrade would have to be handled one on one.
