As the pandemic continues creating economic hardships for many Americans, free tax-return assistance provided by Entergy volunteers has been vital in helping customers receive Earned Income Tax Credits, one of the most effective tools for lifting low-income workers and their families above the poverty line.
This month and throughout the year, we salute all the women of Entergy Mississippi and the many ways they power life for customers, employees, communities and owners.
Since graduating from Lineworker’s Boot Camp last August, Entergy’s newest apprentices have participated in some of the most challenging service-restoration efforts in company history, including devastating hurricanes in Louisiana and, more recently, a winter storm in Mississippi.
Entergy Mississippi has restored service to 8,500 customers who lost power when severe weather passed through our service area late Wednesday, March 17.
Stormy weather producing thunderstorms, heavy rain, hail, lightning and tornadoes struck Entergy Mississippi’s service area late Wednesday, causing scattered outages from Attala County to the Mississippi/Louisiana state line. About 1,673 customers remain without power, down from a peak of approximately 8,500.
Entergy Mississippi is preparing to respond to severe weather predicted to strike our service area starting later today. The severe weather could include tornadoes, hail, damaging winds, flash flooding and lightning.
We are here to help you if you’re struggling to pay your bill. Call us at 1-800-Entergy to discuss our bill payment assistance plan. The plan includes deferred payment arrangements for up to 12 months and payment extensions with waived late fees. Customers also can visit entergy.com/mypaymentoptions to find a payment option that best fits their needs.
Did you know that heating your home uses more energy than cooling it? While extreme cold weather is rare in our region, a deep cold snap will impact your energy usage and may impact your bill.
