Entergy ENsight is Online Resource to Help Save Money
With the launch of Entergy’s redesigned ENsight web resource, all the efficiency information, tips and tools customers need to make smart energy- and money-saving choices are just a mouse-click away.
Selecting the “Save Money on Your Bill” icon on the entergy.com and entergytexas.com home pages takes customers to newly improved ENsight, Entergy’s website to help customers save money on their bills. The enhanced site is a key component of Entergy’s “You’ve Got The Power” initiative offering multiple ways to help customers gain more control over energy use and receive assistance with energy expenses this summer.
“ENsight is a powerful resource for customers, and now it’s easier to access, navigate and use than ever before,” said Vernon Pierce, customer service director for Entergy Texas. “The new and improved site has valuable tips for planning year-round and we’ve launched it just in time for the summer season – when electricity use rises along with the temperatures – to help customers prepare with an arsenal of energy-efficiency tools.”
ENsight is customized for both residential and business customers. Residential customers can explore features in three main categories: a Home Energy Check-up tool, including lighting and appliance calculators; a plethora of simple tips to make your home or business more energy-efficient; and information about available energy-efficiency programs.
For example, ENsight’s Simple Steps reminds customers that the refrigerator/freezer typically account for eight cents of every electric dollar, and standing in front of an open refrigerator door deciding what to get wastes a lot of energy and money. The website also clues customers in about other refrigerator and freezer efficiency tips – like the fact that side-by-side models use about 45 percent more energy than over-under two-door ones. The appliance calculator can estimate approximate energy costs of operating a particular fridge and freezer.
“ENsight gives customers the power of knowledge and choice when it comes to saving money on their Entergy bills,” Pierce said. “We encourage customers to visit ENsight and learn about the many ways they can save on a single appliance or their entire house or business.”
