Lower Energy Costs.
Choosing electric instead of diesel-powered pumps could help you reduce operating costs.
Lower Maintenance 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.
Line Extension Policy.
The Entergy Mississippi line extension policy allows for up to 600 feet per well (line, poles and transformer) at no additional cost to agricultural customers. For line extensions in excess of 600 feet, Entergy offers revenue justification where Entergy will cover the cost of the line extension up to 4 times the amount of estimated annual revenue.
Combining multiple wells under the same property owner into a single project allows customers to maximize their line extension credits in order to make a larger project feasible.
For line extensions beyond 600' and revenue justification credit the customer can pay any remaining cost either upfront (Contribution in Aid of Construction - CIAC) or through a charge added to your monthly bill (minimum bill).
