As a result of the Mississippi Public Service Commission and Entergy Mississippi reaching a $300 million settlement in late June, Entergy customers across the state can now sign up for an $80 refund.
Customers will have until Wednesday, August 17 to log on to their “MyEntergy” account for their refund check, which will be sent through the mail. If a customer does not elect to receive a check, they will automatically receive $80 in credit on their September bill.
“Our job at the PSC is to be a watchdog, not a lapdog agency and this $80 refund is a direct result of our action to protect the pocketbooks of Mississippians against over-profiting by corporate monopolies,” Commissioner Brandon Presley said last month. “I fought hard to give each Entergy customer the option to get this $80 in the form of a check rather than just a bill credit. With gas prices at $4 per gallon at the pump and inflation rising at every turn, I want customers who need this money for the family budget to get it now. If they just want a bill credit then they don’t have to sign up for a check and they’ll get the credit automatically in September.”
The settlement reached with Entergy was the largest in PSC history.
