Entergy New Orleans' grid modernization initiatives
include upgrading to advanced meters and expanding
online energy management tools.
The new technology includes a sophisticated communications network that will provide a clearer, near real-time picture of the power grid and how it is operating. This allows for outages to be identified more accurately, so crews can arrive on the scene more quickly to make repairs.
It will also provide timely and more detailed
information on energy usage, which will allow you to
adjust power consumption between bills.
Upgrading to advanced metering lays the foundation for modernizing Entergy New Orleans' power grid. It's a multi-year investment that starts by installing the IT and network systems, which will occur over the next 12 months. Meter installation at homes and businesses in the Entergy New Orleans service area will begin in early 2019 and is expected to be complete by the end of 2021.
