Entergy shareholders and the Entergy Charitable Foundation are helping to power life in Louisiana’s local communities with grants to hundreds of nonprofit groups across the state.
Entergy is providing funding to support Ochsner Health’s current team of health care workers, as well as those training to join the frontlines of the COVID-19 response.
Employees at the Entergy New Orleans Power Station and Burns & McDonnell donated approximately 1,500 N95 masks to the hospital’s health care workers.
Entergy is committed partnering with organizations, like Start the Adventure in Reading based in New Orleans, to help ensure that all our customers – even the youngest – have access to a quality education. Nonprofit community partners, such as Start the Adventure in Reading, were recipients of more than $1.3 million awarded by shareholders through the Entergy Charitable Foundation’s first round of grants in 2019.
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.
Students in Orleans Parish and the surrounding area will soon have a place to call home as they learn about ecology and what it takes to maintain a critical coastal forest ecosystem thanks to a grant from Entergy.
Support from the Entergy Charitable Foundation has helped Posse New Orleans fulfill the college-bound dreams of more than 150 high-school scholars, many of whom would have otherwise lacked the resources to continue their education.
