Entergy Texas’ annual fan distribution helps low-income customers stay cool and save

Tri County Community Action in Woodville was among the recipients of Entergy Texas' fan giveaway.

For the 21st summer in a row, Entergy Texas, Inc. donated fans to help low-income customers stay cool and save money. This year, the company donated 1,300 boxed fans to 34 agencies and locations across southeast Texas, bringing the total number of fans donated to 24,500 since the start of the program.

“The Texas summers are stifling on their own, but for customers without access to air-conditioning, they can be unbearable,” said Stuart Barrett, vice president of customer service for Entergy Texas. “We know these fans go a long way in helping our customers stay comfortable and help them save money by offering an alternative cooling option.

“Programs like this are successful thanks to the local partners who help us distribute these fans to low-income customers across southeast Texas,” Barrett said. “We’re grateful for our local cities and agencies who help make this program a success every year.”
