Our power reliability coordinator, the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, is requesting Entergy customers voluntarily reduce their electricity usage on Thursday, Jan. 18, between 5 a.m. and 11 a.m. MISO is making this unusual request because use of electricity could exceed available generation, due to higher than expected demand for power and unexpected power generator outages within the MISO southern territory. MISO is working to bring on additional generation in the area.
As another Arctic blast grips the city, Entergy New Orleans reminds everyone to stay smart about gas and electricity usage while they’re staying warm.
The beginning of a new year is always an exciting time. But once the celebrations wind down, it's time to reflect on changes that can make a big difference in 2018. Why not make lowering your energy usage one of those changes?
With temperatures forecasted in the low 30s south of Lake Pontchartrain and possible snow forecasted on the Northshore, it is safe to say that winter has arrived in the New Orleans area. While these cold conditions aren’t expected until Friday, now is the time to implement energy-saving tips so you can reduce your usage and keep more cash in your wallet.
Low-income customers in New Orleans’ Energy Smart program saved more than 6,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per participant in 2015, according to a recent study by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
Summer is here and what’s better to go with sizzling summer temperatures than some cool savings? Before temperatures start burnin’ like a heat wave, take some time now to prepare for their effect on your energy bill by implementing some simple and efficient solutions at your home or business.
When it comes to energy usage, weather is a major factor in how much or how little the meter spins.

When New Orleanians think of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, football games, concerts and Mardi Gras celebrations come to mind. But now, they can add energy efficiency to that list. That’s because New Orleans’ Energy Smart program recently awarded Superdome officials with a $50,000 cash incentive for lighting upgrades in the venue.
When it comes to being energy-efficient, renters who live in multifamily housing typically don’t have the same freedom to make changes that will help lower their energy usage and cut costs as do average homeowners. But thanks to a pilot program that Entergy New Orleans recently implemented in Algiers, low-income renters now will have the chance to see the impact that Nest Learning Thermostats may make on their monthly energy bills – all at no charge.
The heat is on! While summer temperatures are reaching sweltering levels outside, you can stay one step ahead of their effect on your energy bill by implementing some simple and efficient solutions inside your home or business.
