Program Overview

Now, for a limited time, the Entergy Arkansas Make Your Thermostat Pay Program offers qualifying Entergy Arkansas residents an opportunity to earn up to $50 this year.

It’s quick. It’s simple. And it’s easy.


If you have a central air conditioner or heat pump and any qualifying thermostats*, or if you purchase one, you likely qualify to participate in the program.

Just fill out the information required on our enrollment page, which will link you with your thermostat manufacturer’s page to complete the enrollment. You’ll then receive $25 within 60 days of joining and another $25 every December through 2019 if you stay enrolled throughout each summer season, which runs June 1 through Sept. 30.

Why Join

On the hottest summer days — when tens of thousands of central air conditioners and heat pumps are 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, a signal will be sent to your thermostat to automatically “cycle” your air conditioning unit or heat pump on days when electricity demand is highest, helping to reduce demand when it counts most. Your fan still stays on to keep you comfortable.


In addition to cash incentives for you, when you automatically reduce your energy use at these important times, you help prevent outages, maintain current energy supply, keep rates lower and preserve the natural environment by requiring less production from less efficient generating plants used to meet extraordinary demand.

Bottom line: Make Your Thermostat Pay Program is a win-win for everyone.
