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.
Outages identified more accurately. Faster restoration response. Billing and service questions answered more efficiently. Additional energy-saving tools for customers. These are all benefits of Entergy’s vision for a smarter energy future, through the company’s deployment of advanced metering for Entergy Louisiana and Entergy New Orleans customers.
