Entergy Arkansas to lower electric bills by average of $10 per month for the next year


The 730,000 customers of Entergy Arkansas will see a drop in their utility bills as the utility intends to cut electricity rates in May.

The company, in its recent announcement, said average residential customers will see a drop of about $10 a month. Entergy Arkansas is the state’s largest utility and explained the reduction in rates is due to fuel rates that have declined to their lowest levels in 10 years reported the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

“Although our rates are consistently lower than the regional and national average, we continue to keep affordability for our customers at the forefront of our decisions,” Ventrell Thompson, vice president of customer service, said in announcing the rate cut.

“The total decrease customers see on their bills will vary based on their individual energy usage but comes at a time when our customers need bill relief and will extend during the upcoming hot summer months.”
