The November 28, 2010 edition of Arkansas Democrat Gazette has an article about Entergy Arkansas’ new program to help residential customers monitor their electricity use and possibly lower their monthly bills.
Unlike standard meters that show only the total kilowatt hours used, choice meters show four readings – total use, off-peak kilowatt hours, midpeak hours, and peak hours. Off-peak hours have lower rates than midpeak and peak hours. By switching from standard meters to choice meters, customers can see their electricity use during different hours and shift energy-intensive activities from higher-rate times to lower-rate times.
The program is offered to all customers. For more information, visit www.entergy-arkansas.com/choicemetering/ or call (800) 368-3749.
