WASHINGTON, April 18 -- House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, issued the following statement after Entergy Louisiana announced it is using $210 million in savings from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to reduce electricity rates for customers and upgrade its infrastructure:

"Since the passage of our Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, good news for families has not stopped. Families in Louisiana will now be seeing lower electricity rates because of our tax cuts bill, and the timing couldn't be better with summer approaching.

"Families win twice because they will now have lower utility bills and bigger paychecks each month as a direct result of the law recently enacted by Republicans in Congress working with President Trump.

"I applaud Entergy for acting quickly and cutting utility rates because of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act."

Entergy joins several other utility companies across the country who have announced lower rates for their consumers, directly passing on the savings they see under the law.

Entergy Louisiana to Return Millions in Tax Savings to Customers

April 18, 2018

BATON ROUGE, La. - Entergy Louisiana customers will see a series of rate reductions over the remainder of 2018 under an agreement approved today by the Louisiana Public Service Commission.

The first of the reductions will occur in May as a result of $210 million in federal tax reform-related savings, $105 million of which will be returned to customers over the next eight months, with the remaining half of these savings returned to customers over the following four years. As a result, a typical residential customer using 1,000 kWh per month will see a roughly $4.20 decrease on monthly bills from May through December of this year.

A second reduction of approximately $2 per month on residential bills will occur in September 2018 as a result of additional credits tied to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act approved by Congress in late 2017. At the same time, Entergy Louisiana will begin realizing approximately $130 million in annual tax savings to offset the cost of upgrading infrastructure.

"Along with customer refunds, tax reform also helps provide us the ability to invest in modernizing our system for the benefit of customers while maintaining some of the lowest rates in the country," Phillip May, president and CEO of Entergy Louisiana, said.

These reductions are the result of an agreement approved by the LPSC that extends and modifies Entergy Louisiana's Formula Rate Plan for three more years and will provide a mechanism for determining the rates Entergy Louisiana charges through August 2021. The extended FRP will provide for rate stability and includes, among other provisions, mechanisms that address federal tax changes and that better match the benefits and costs of investments in generation, transmission and distribution the company is making on behalf of its customers.

In addition to the tax-related rate reductions, customers will see significant savings in October when recovery of storm restoration costs associated with hurricanes Katrina and Rita rolls off bills. The typical legacy Entergy Louisiana residential customers using 1,000 kWh per month will see a reduction of approximately $4.15 in the storm restoration charge on their monthly bill. The storm restoration charge will be about $2.55 less per month for the typical legacy Entergy Gulf States Louisiana residential customer using 1,000 kWh.

"We worked closely with the Louisiana Public Service Commission to ensure our customers realize the initial tax reform benefits in time to reduce rates and lower customers' bills during high-usage summer months. As it stands now, Entergy Louisiana customers already enjoy some of the lowest rates in both the state and the country, and that's before our customers benefit from the federal tax savings," May said.

"The fact that all involved parties - from the Alliance for Affordable Energy to some of our largest industrial customers - either support or do not oppose the rate agreement speaks to how fairly it treats all of our customers," May said.

Entergy Louisiana, LLC provides electric service to more than 1 million customers and natural gas service to nearly 93,000 customers in the greater Baton Rouge area. With operations in southern, central and northeastern Louisiana, the company is a subsidiary of Entergy Corporation.

Entergy Corporation is an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations. Entergy owns and operates power plants with approximately 30,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity, including nearly 9,000 megawatts of nuclear power. Entergy delivers electricity to 2.9 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Entergy has annual revenues of approximately $11 billion and more than 13,000 employees.
