Entergy Mississippi announces rate decrease


JACKSON, Miss. – Entergy Mississippi customers will see a decrease in their electric rates beginning in the July billing cycle. The typical residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours per month will pay $136.80 beginning in July, down $7.08 from June.

Bills are a combination of rates and usage, and high temperatures of summer tend to drive more energy use. Fortunately, the Mississippi Public Service Commission has approved Entergy Mississippi’s new rate plan reductions as summer reaches its peak.

“We work hard to safely provide reliable and affordable electricity to all our customers,” said Haley Fisackerly, Entergy Mississippi president and CEO. “Low rates are important to our customers as they budget for the home, as small businesses owners create new jobs, and as industries look to expand in our state.

The rate decrease and a decline in natural gas prices are not the only factors contributing to more savings for customers. Entergy Mississippi has implemented several other money-saving strategies to benefit customers, too, including:

  1. Spreading costs over time to help customers budget for higher bills caused by increased natural gas prices.
  2. Streamlining operational costs to become even more efficient.
  3. Saving customers’ money with free home energy efficiency kits and services.
  4. Shifting dependence on natural gas by offering new and varied power sources.

“We’re thankful to the Mississippi Public Service Commission for approving this decrease in rates, which allows our customers to save money. It comes at a crucial time, when the Mississippi heat tends to cause high energy usage,” said Fisackerly. “We hope this savings will help customers feel some relief from the heat and in their wallets at a time when they need it most.”

Entergy Mississippi’s residential rates continue to be among the lowest in the nation and have grown more slowly than the cost of other goods since 2005. In nearly two decades, residential rates have increased by 23%, while the cost of bread and eggs have risen by 63% and 135%, respectively.

      Entergy nearly tripled their flat rate per meter and now offer this pittance. They enjoy a monopoly here. Be wonderful if we could deregulate utilities like Texas and other states have. Then we’d have a choice for service and price.

    Explain to me why during the winter my bill is over $300.00 + for 2 or 3 consecutive months and now because we have storms and lights go out for days that the bill drops?? Doesn’t make any sense to me. They charge what they want to charge!! My heart is for the linemen who truly put their lives in the line for the customers and that company. If the CEO would get out there and help the linemen while they work, at least you could justify part of his salary! Too many in administration and not enough linemen when the lights go out!!

    Mine runs around $156 per month with level billing. Last month it was $174 which I expected because of the extreme heat. If you have lived in your home a year you can get level billing I believe.
    Another family members is between $275 and $300 a month. However, at my house at most we have 3 lights and the ac on most times.
    It’s important to teach children to turn the lights off when leaving their room. If they don’t like to sleep in the dark use a light light with the cover removed or add glow in the dark stars over their beds. One other suggestion is check their rooms if they have a tv or stereo. Make sure those aren’t left on.
    One last way to save is checking the dryer after about 25 mins. Unless it is a heavy load like denim it doesn’t take a full cycle to dry them.
    Earth Breeze who sells those laundry detergent, dishwasher products, and bathroom cleaners which are all plastic free recommends adding a dry towel to your dryer along with wet clothing. They say it saves electricity by decreasing the amount of time it takes clothes to dry.
