Our hot and humid climate can certainly lead to sticker shock during a summer heat wave, but there’s a way for home owners to smooth out the ups and downs of monthly energy costs.

Once you’ve been billed for 12 consecutive months of service, Entergy offers a level billing program that calculates a rolling year average of use and bills you for that average each month. While it takes away those lovely, low winter time expenses it also keeps you from having to choose between vacation and air conditioning during the summer.
