EPA recognizes Entergy Texas as 'Energy Star Partner'

BEAUMONT — More than 50,000 Southeast Texans have taken part in Entergy Texas, Inc.’s energy efficiency programs over the last 11 years. And now, for the second year in a row, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized the company with a “2013 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award” for its outstanding contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by delivering energy efficiency information and services to its customers.

The company’s accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on March 26.

Entergy Texas, an ENERGY STAR partner since 2002, is being honored for its work to increase market share of energy-efficient ENERGY STAR qualified products and services through comprehensive outreach, education, and marketing programs.

Over the last 20 years, with help from ENERGY STAR, American families and businesses have saved more than $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

“We are committed to working in partnership with ENERGY STAR to help our customers learn more about energy efficiency,” said Kelley Carson, program manager for Entergy Solutions, the name the company’s programs operate under. “By using energy-efficient ENERGY STAR products, our customers can save energy and money while addressing climate change.”

“Entergy Texas sets the bar for promoting energy-efficient products and services that help Americans learn how to save money and energy while protecting the environment, said Bob Perciasepe, acting administrator, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “Entergy Solutions’ program delivery methods demonstrate how communities across the nation can protect the climate through greater energy efficiency and provide a road map for future program implementers.”

The ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Awards for Energy Efficiency Program Delivery are given to a variety of organizations in recognition of their efforts to improve energy efficiency and reduce pollution. Award winners are selected from the nearly 20,000 organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program.
