Entergy to provide security lights for customers
When the sun goes down, most of us get ready for a good night’s sleep with doors locked and homes secured. And now it’s easier than ever to enhance the safety of your home with security lights from Entergy Texas, Inc.
Via a special link, customers can let Entergy Texas know they are interested in having a security light installed at their home or business. Within just two business days, they will be contacted and a lighting expert will assist them in determining what will best suit their needs. Details can be found at http://www.entergy-texas.com/outdoorlighting/security_lighting.aspx
An online form is not, however, the only way to start the process. Those who prefer to phone may call 1-866-603-0192.
“Security lighting is an important concern to our customers,” said Vernon Pierce, customer service director, Entergy Texas, Inc. “Thieves and burglars don’t like to go about their business where they can be seen. Providing security lighting brings our expertise to bear for the benefit of our customers.”
Once a light is installed, no fee is charged for regular maintenance and even if the light and pole are destroyed in a weather event, such as a hurricane, they will be replaced free of charge to the customer.
Security lights begin with a 100-watt high-pressure sodium light suitable for a home. High-pressure sodium floodlights are also available in 100-, 400- and 1,000-watt sizes. Metal halide floodlights that provide high-resolution color are available in a 1,000-watt size. Small installation fees are charged, either $25 or $50, depending on the size of the light.
Customers are charged monthly for the lights with the charge added to existing bills. The charges vary depending on the light’s wattage and begin at about $10 per month. If a pole must be installed, an additional fee will be charged.
“We use industry standard products,” Pierce said. “They are fully tested, weather-resistant and commercial grade. Our installers are fully trained electrical workers who keep safety first and foremost in their work.”
