We present a proposal for the experimental observation of energy-time entanglement of quasiparticles in mesoscopic physics. This type of entanglement arises whenever correlated particles are produced at the same time and this time is uncertain in the sense of quantum uncertainty, as has been largely used in photonics. We discuss its feasibility for electron-hole pairs. In particular, we argue that junctions between materials in which electrons and holes, respectively, propagate ballistically and behave as "entanglers" for energy-time entanglement when irradiated with a continuous laser.
