Entergy offers programs to help with energy costs

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

As it heats up, the folks at Entergy Mississippi want to remind you of some programs that could assist you with your energy costs. 

  • Money raised through "The Power to Care" program helps elderly and disabled customers pay their energy bills. 
  • Entergy's "Level Billing Program" helps any customer manage their costs throughout the year. 
  • The "Residential HVAC Equipment and Tune-up Program" offers check ups on A/C and heat pumps at a discount or little or no cost for low-income customers.
  • Through the free “Residential Audit and Direct Install Program” known as "READI,” you'll learn how to make your home more energy efficient. A home inspection is included.

“We have an energy expert come to your home, walk through your home with you." said Entergy Mississippi spokesperson Mara Hartmann. "It takes about an hour and very specific recommendations about how you can make your home more energy efficient. They'll give you a simple report.”

Some other tips to save energy include, setting your thermostat no lower than 78 degrees. Also, use fans to cool off, replace air filters, close blinds and shades, wrap your hot water heater with a blanket and seal leaky windows and doors.
