Entergy Mississippi customers will see an even lower drop in the rates this summer.
The typical residential customer using 1,000 kWh per month will pay approximately $1.77 less beginning in July.
Currently, residential customers pay $110.02 per 1,000 kWh per month.
This is the second decrease in rates this year.
The decrease is due to the Ad Valorem Tax rider being revised as part of Entergy Mississippi's “Bright Future” plan approved by the Mississippi Public Service Commission last December.
That plan took effect February 1 and also resulted in a $1.78 decrease for a typical residential bill.
“We're pleased that rates are going down now during summer, which is a time when customer usage and bills typically rise with the temperature,” said Haley Fisackerly, Entergy Mississippi president and CEO.
