A meter reader for Entergy has been fired after falsifying meter readings and now about 4,000 Entergy customers in southeast Louisiana are experiencing sticker shock with their latest bills.
Entergy Vice President of Distribution Melonie Stewart says because the reader was falsifying the readings on the low side for months, the corrected bills are catching some customers off guard.More

Taxes are down 14% for utility companies in the wake of the federal tax overhaul, but Louisianans haven’t seen lower rates. The Public Service Commission says they anticipate lower rates as a result, but Commissioner Lambert Boissierre says you may have to wait until the summer to see the change.
“The estimate came in at approximately four months, so were looking at something like June is the current estimate.”

Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell says the tax reductions will save some utility companies, such as Entergy and Cleco, hundreds of millions of dollars. Campbell says those savings shouldn’t be stashed.More
