NEW ORLEANS (BRPROUD) — Entergy announced on Tuesday they will assist customers who have seen an increase in their energy bills.

According to Entergy, June has had high temperatures, causing customers to use more energy and electricity. To lighten the load off customers, Entergy is adding complementary services to help during the high usage months, including:

  • Waiving late payment fees for all eligible residential customers
  • Waiving credit card payment fees for all residential customers
