JACKSON — Entergy Mississippi says customers will see lower utility bills for the remainder of 2010.
The company says in a news release that the average residential bill, based on 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity use each month, should drop by about 12 percent from October through December.
Entergy says the average monthly rate amount based on that usage would be $87.35 versus $99.39 in September.
The Public Service Commission recently approved the utility’s regular quarterly fuel adjustment, which takes effect today.
The company says the lower bills should start arriving at homes in about a month.
Entergy Mississippi serves more than 433,000 customers in 45 counties.
