Entergy Mississippi bills to shrink — slightly
The company says bills for average residential customers — those using 1,000 kilowatt hours per month — will be $1.16 lower for the next three months.
The state Public Service Commission recently voted unanimously to lower the quarterly fuel-rate adjustment Entergy seeks.
Entergy officials said a key factor in bills going down has been the reduction in cost of natural gas, a standard electricity source for the utility.
Entergy spokeswoman Mara Hartmann says the trend seems set to continue, and customers should see the effect of that going forward.
A typical customer’s bill will average $93.19 per month from April through June, compared to $94.35 currently.
