The Energy Smart program connects Entergy New Orleans customers with trade ally contractors to help them select and install energy efficient products that have verifiable energy savings for customers.Trade allies can leverage these cash incentives to gain new customers and maximize existing customer projects that reduce energy use.
The program provides technical assistance to trade allies and customers to identify energy efficiency opportunities, develop cost-effective projects and complete required program documentation. Energy Smart trade allies are invited to participate in various training, development and networking opportunities provided by the program and its partners.
Trade allies receive a ranking of General, Silver, Gold, or Platinum based on their level of participation in the program. These rankings are reflected in the online searchable databases which customers use to contact trade allies. Energy Smart updates its tier rankings annually.
