Program Overview

Summer Advantage is the successful Entergy program for Arkansas residents that could earn you up to $80 this year.*

Up to $80? There's got to be a catch, right?

No catch. Summer Advantage is such an important energy efficiency initiative, we'll pay you up to $80 to join! On the hottest summer days — when tens of thousands of central air conditioners and heat pumps are running at the same time. The demand for energy can put a strain on the power supply. That's where you come in. Once you join, we'll install a small device near your outdoor central air conditioning unit or heat pump. This device will automatically "cycle" your air conditioning unit or heat pump on days when electricity demand is highest, helping to reduce demand when it counts most. You choose how much you're cycled, so the program can work easily with your lifestyle. (See the chart below for more information.)


With Summer Advantage, you help:

  • Keep our power supply steady.
  • Maintain current electricity prices.
  • Reduce carbon emissions that contribute to global warming.
