When it’s hot outside, we want it cool inside. But trying to keep your cool in the dog days of summer can take a chunk of change out of your pocketbook. Even though Entergy has some of the lowest rates in the country, using a lot of electricity – which most people do in summer – can lead to high bills. After all, air conditioning and heating account for as much as half of your monthly bill.
Entergy New Orleans is pleased with the Court’s ruling today upholding the New Orleans City Council's well-reasoned decision approving the construction of the New Orleans Power Station.
Hurricane season starts June 1. And although slightly below-normal activity is predicted this year, we know that it only takes one storm to affect our customers. Entergy is ready to safely and quickly restore power should a tropical system head our way.
The calendar may say summer hasn’t officially started, but the heat is ramping up! Now is the time to take some simple steps to help minimize the impact sizzling temps can have on your energy bill before summer is in full swing.
Entergy New Orleans customers have saved approximately $118 million in the five years since the company joined MISO, a regional transmission organization.
Entergy shareholders provided $9.7 million in grants in 2018 to support more than 700 nonprofit organizations that provide essential services and help build healthy, vibrant communities across Louisiana. Approximately 50 percent of the contributions went to support education and workforce development.
Entergy New Orleans is piloting a new program that puts solar panels on the rooftops of low-income customers’ homes and gives them a $30 credit on their energy bills every month, rain or shine. The Residential Rooftop Solar Program is a simple and straightforward way for New Orleans customers in need to participate in the benefits of distributed renewable energy.
Where empty commercial rooftops once stood, shiny new panels are capturing the power of the sun and putting it directly on the electric distribution grid for the benefit of all customers. Entergy New Orleans has made significant progress in constructing its 5 megawatt commercial-scale rooftop solar pilot project, which was approved by the New Orleans City Council in June 2018.
Since parts of Louisiana could see temperatures drop to the 20s this weekend, and to the low 30s on the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain, Entergy is reminding customers that energy efficiency is important year-round.
