The Entergy Solutions Program provides technical and financial support to help Entergy Arkansas customers identify and implement projects that reduce energy usage. In addition to the incentives, due to the energy efficiency project and operational changes, ASU Three Rivers has also saved an estimated $11,362.50 in annual electricity cost savings!

Arkansas State University Three Rivers has also received support through the CitySmart Program, which offers support specifically to institutional and public entities.

The CitySmart Program helps facility supervisors understand the technical and financial benefits of investing in energy efficiency and develop an improvement plan. The program does not prescribe technologies or end uses, but instead provides a framework through which the participants can receive incentives for implementing and installing a wide range of measures at their sites. Entergy Arkansas’ Continuous Energy Improvement (CEI) initiative is part of the CitySmart Program. CEI focuses on behavioral and operational changes to improve energy efficiency. As a CEI participant, ASU Three Rivers is offered personalized, step-by-step guidance, resources, and yearly incentives to embed energy efficiency into its culture.

ASU Three Rivers is located in the service area of the Southwest Arkansas Regional Authority. Malvern and Hot Spring County are SWARIA members.
