City Council Considers Raising Bill for Entergy New Orleans’ Ida Cost
City Council accepts Entergy New Orleans customer bill increase requests after utilities incurred $170 million in costs during Hurricane Ida.
Members of the Public Utilities Commission voted Wednesday to consider a proposal originally made in June. The offer, along with another request to replenish the depleted Storm reserves, would create a monthly bill of $4.40 for the average customer.
General Council member JP Morrell, chairman of the committee, said this was just the beginning of the process, which has a deadline of August 2023.
