Save Smart with a Free Smart Thermostat.

The Entergy Arkansas Smart Direct Load Control Pilot Program is helping our residential and business customers save energy by offering an advanced smart thermostat and professional installation at absolutely no additional cost when you enroll in the program. A $225 value.

We are now offering a direct ship, self-install smart thermostat option. This option provides assistance so that you can install the thermostat yourself. If you prefer professional installation, we can schedule the installation now or wait until you are comfortable with an installation professional coming to your home.

What’s so smart about a smart thermostat?

A smart thermostat learns your personal preferences to automatically adjust temperatures when you come and go. And by connecting it to your home's Wi-Fi, you can control the temperature from anywhere, using your tablet or smartphone.

Already have a smart thermostat? No problem. You can still participate in the program if you have one of the qualifying thermostats below:

  • Click here to enroll your Emerson Sensi Touch or Sensi Wi-Fi smart thermostat.

  • Click here to enroll your Honeywell Home T5, T6 Pro, T9 or T10 Pro smart thermostat.

  • Click here to enroll your Honeywell Home 9000, FocusPRO or Round smart thermostat.

How it Works

Enjoy effortless savings by enrolling in the Smart Direct Load Control Pilot Program and help reduce high energy demand when it counts most – during the summer months when tens of thousands of central air conditioning systems are all running at the same time. The demand for energy can put a strain on the power supply. That’s where you come in.

When you join this program, a signal will be sent to your enrolled thermostat to automatically adjust the temperature on your thermostat by two to four degrees on days when electricity demand is highest, helping to reduce demand when it counts most. 

Between June 1 and Sept. 30 each year, your enrolled thermostat will alert you when an energy-saving demand response event is underway and provide the time an event is scheduled to end. By allowing Entergy to slightly increase your thermostat’s set temperature, you can cash in by earning participation incentives.


Benefits

In addition to a free smart thermostat and/or cash incentives for you, when you automatically reduce your energy use at these important times, you help prevent outages, maintain current energy supply and preserve the natural environment by requiring less electricity production. When you participate in this program you get rewarded for helping to prevent power outages and reduce emissions on hot, humid days.


Bottom line: the Smart Direct Load Control Pilot Program is a win-win for everyone. Don’t wait to start saving.
