Central Arkansas Water (CAW) received an incentive check for $29,467 from Entergy Arkansas’ Entergy Business Solutions Large Commercial & Industrial (C&I) Program for implementing energy savings upgrades that noticeably reduced CAW’s energy consumption and operating expenses.

“Entergy Arkansas offered CAW a financial incentive to make energy efficiency upgrades to our facilities, which resulted in several improvements for the utility. The money we’re saving on energy can be re-invested into our operations, yield benefits for our ratepayers and economy of this community,” said Elizabeth Tuck-Rowan, Purchasing Manager for Central Arkansas Water. “Additionally, these changes are good for the environment, which is very important to us and our customers.”  CAW’s participation in Entergy’s Business Solutions C&I Program resulted in estimated energy savings of 197,970 kWh annually.

Entergy Arkansas’ Business Solutions C&I Program helps customers save energy and money by providing technical assistance to identify facility improvement recommendations and financial incentives based on the total amount of energy the higher efficient equipment will save.

CAW also received incentive checks in 2011 and 2015 from Entergy’s C&I program for energy efficiency upgrades at the utility’s James T. Harvey Administration Building and the Jack H. Wilson Water Treatment Plant.

“Entergy Arkansas is improving economic investment in communities that it serves by helping commercial and industrial customers save energy and earn valuable incentives,” said Paul Brewster, Customer Service Representative for Entergy Arkansas. “We are pleased to be able to partner with Central Arkansas Water on the energy savings improvements at their facilities.”

CAW is the largest water supplier in the state of Arkansas serving over 400,000 consumers.
