Entergy Grows Revenue, Increases Customer Satisfaction with Value-Added Services
Historically, regulated industries like energy utilities have been slow to adapt to disruptive technologies compared to more competitive industries. But now, with new energy competitors and solutions emerging all the time, pressure to innovate and retain customers is mounting.
Now, forward-thinking utilities like Entergy are offering customers a suite of value-added services to differentiate themselves and improve customer satisfaction. Value-added services are broadly defined as a utility’s programmatic offerings to customers outside the traditional business of delivering safe, reliable, and affordable power and gas.
Entergy is growing revenue and customer engagement across several programs, including:
- LED lighting
- EV charging infrastructure consulting
- Power Through Resiliency-as-a-Service
Enchanted Rock’s Allan Schurr, Chief Commercial Officer, and Entergy’s Cory Ramsel, VP of Portfolio Marketing, Sales and Customer Insights, will share insights and milestones from their recent program launch. In this webinar you will learn:
- How leading utilities are retaining customers with value-added services
- Tips for choosing the right services for your regulatory model
- Why now is the best time to utilize value-added services to balance customer needs for resiliency and the grid’s need for fast-ramp capacity
- How to create Resiliency-as-a-Service program, including go to market
You should watch this on demand webinar if you are a utility leader seeking to improve large C&I customer relationships.
