Energy Smart, the entity that has partnered with Green Light New Orleans to replace 600,000 light bulbs at more than 27,000 homes, is offering a new program to Entergy New Orleans customers (Orleans Parish only).
The EasyCool Program gives Entergy New Orleans customers the opportunity to earn $40 every year. Simply sign up, and if you are eligible, Energy Smart will install an A/C cycling switch or “smart switch” on your outdoor air conditioning unit or heat pump. For each summer season you participate, you’ll earn $40. There’s no need to sign up again next summer, your enrollment is automatic–just keep enjoying your $40 year after year.
$40 in your pocket is just the start. Here are four more reasons to sign up:
- You’ll make a difference.
When you participate in this program, you help reduce demand on the grid, which benefits the environment, ensures a continual supply of energy and keeps electric costs more affordable.
- It only applies to four months of the year.
During the months of June, July, August and September–and only when demand on the grid is extremely high–your “smart switch” may be activated. If activated, your air conditioner or heat pump will still operate, circulating already cooled air, but will cycle on and off for short periods of time–and only up to four hours.
- It’s free to participate. And you don’t need to be home for the installation.
We provide the equipment, and installation is free. Also, if your outdoor unit is accessible, you don’t need to be home during installation.
- Signing up is easy.
Simply call 504-229-6868 or complete this online form. Participation is open to residential homeowners or renters living in the Entergy New Orleans service territory with a central air conditioner or heat pump system on the ground floor. Other terms apply, so call or go online to learn more.
