The City of Sidney, Neb., City Council recently approved upgrading its Sidney Legion Park’s softball field with a new lighting system with its revenue funds from ACE, the Public Alliance for Community Energy.
The new lights will be a significant improvement over the old lights and will bring the softball field up to date with the other softball fields in the complex, according to NewsChannel Nebraska.
ACE is the only not-for-profit and community-owned retail natural gas supplier that competes in the Nebraska Choice Gas program. Through its revenue return program, ACE has returned more than $2.8 million to its member communities since it formed as an organization in 1998. The City of Sidney, a charter member community of ACE, has received more than $194,000 since 1998.
The funds have been used for many projects including park and playground improvements, infrastructure improvements, public transportation, recreation trails and many more. Click here to see a list of projects ACE funds have been used for.
