Energy Efficiency Resources

Energy Smart

Energy Smart is a comprehensive energy efficiency program developed by the New Orleans City Council and administered by Entergy New Orleans. The program incentivizes Entergy New Orleans customers to perform energy saving upgrades in their homes and businesses. The Energy Smart team works with residents, business owners, facility managers and trade ally contractors to identify opportunities and provide cash incentives for completing eligible upgrades with measurable and verifiable energy savings.  

Federal Incentives

The passage of the Inflation Reduction Act expanded the number and dollar amounts of tax credits available to make energy efficiency upgrades to homes. Tax incentives cover costs related to appliances such as heat pumps and electric/induction stoves, as well as repairs related to electrical wiring, windows, and insulation.
