Starting in August, a legacy Entergy Louisiana residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt- hours per month will see a reduction of approximately $4.35 in the storm restoration charge on their monthly bill, while a legacy Entergy Gulf States Louisiana residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours will pay about $2.57 less per month.
