Entergy Mississippi has a variety of solutions to meet customers’ needs
JACKSON, Miss. – When it’s cold outside, energy bills can quickly heat up. That’s because electricity use is often higher in colder months than in the milder seasons of fall and spring.
Colder temps in January often result in higher bills in February. If you’re faced with a higher-than-usual bill and need help managing it, follow these suggestions:
First, use no more energy than necessary. Follow simple energy saving tips like these:
Set your thermostat on 68 degrees or lower
Reverse ceiling fans to push warm air down into the room
Insulating doors and windows with inexpensive sealers from home improvement stores.
If a high bill has already arrived, here are ways to get help managing your costs or even paying your bill:
Level Billing. Entergy averages your bill over a rolling 12-month period so you have a consistent bill each month of the year. Pay about the same every month, with no surprises.
Pick-A-Date . Choose what day of the month you get billed to line up with your budget and manage your cash flow.
Power to Care. Through Entergy’s The Power to Care program, local nonprofit groups can provide emergency bill payment help to seniors and disabled individuals in crisis. Find out more at entergy-mississippi.com/bill-help
