Lower Energy Costs.
Choosing electric instead of diesel-powered pumps could help you reduce operating costs.
- Electric motors last longer.
- No belts, radiators, clutches, or oil changes needed.
- Vibration in the motor is minimal, which is better for the pump and well.
Plus, electric is more reliable, cleaner, quieter, safer, and easier to operate.
For agricultural customers, Entergy Arkansas will install up to 1,320 feet of electric line per well (including lines, poles, and transformers) at no cost. Combine multiple wells under the same property owner into a single project to maximize your line extension credits and make larger projects feasible. For line extensions beyond 1,320 feet, you can pay the remaining cost upfront (contribution in aid of construction) or through a charge added to your monthly bill.
