Entergy to help customers in Louisiana Beat the Heat this summer
NEW ORLEANS – Entergy Louisiana and Entergy New Orleans have kicked off a series of measures to help customers “Beat the Heat” this summer. The Beat the Heat program focuses on helping customers and communities stay cool and manage their energy usage to help save money on their utility bills.
Last summer, record high temperatures resulted in higher energy usage and high natural gas prices impacted customer bills. To help customers “Beat the Heat” this summer, the companies are equipping residential customers with information and tools to reduce the impact of high summer temperatures and increased energy usage, including:
- Partnering with community organizations and working with Entergy employees in Louisiana to conduct neighborhood sweeps in select areas to weatherize homes.
- Distributing fans through partner agencies statewide, as well as energy efficiency kits for customers in the New Orleans area (times and locations to be announced soon).
- Providing emergency bill payment assistance to older adults and customers with disabilities through Entergy’s The Power to Care program.
- Participating in community events over the summer and providing additional support beyond bill relief, such as donating food and school supplies.
