To assist low-income customers and communities, Entergy hosts the “Beat the Heat” fan campaign



Little Rock, Arkansas – A local charity and an electric provider in Arkansas are working together to provide fans to those in need during this summer’s heat wave.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Entergy Arkansas said that it was organizing a “Beat the Heat” fan campaign to benefit low-income families and neighborhoods. The yearly initiative aims to reduce energy costs and provide relief during high temperatures.

According to Entergy, heating and cooling account for around 55% of the average customer’s electric bill, so taking action to conserve energy can help you save money. According to a representative, strategically placed fans can help a room chill down by supplementing air conditioning.

Customers of Entergy, including Monica Williams, expressed appreciation for the service.

“With it being so extremely hot right now, it’s important to be careful and safe. I need this fan to do that,” she said. “My air filters in my home need to be replaced and I’m still waiting on building maintenance to do that. This fan will really help in the meantime.”

Entergy Arkansas has partnered with several organizations across the state to help distribute fans including:

• Ozark Center of Hope, Mountain Home
• Arkansas River Valley Area Council, Russellville
• Mississippi County Arkansas Economic Opportunity Commission, Blytheville
• Black River Area Development Corp., Pocahontas
• Watershed Human Community Development Agency, Little Rock
• Area Agency on Aging, Pine Bluff

730,000 consumers of Entergy receive service in 63 Arkansas counties.
