Refunds coming for Entergy customers after settlement

By: Sarah Ulmer - July 14, 2022

Customers who do not choose a check will receive an $80 credit on their September bill.

Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley announced Wednesday that customers of Entergy Mississippi can begin signing up to receive a one-time $80 check from the power company on August 1st using Engergy’s website.

Customers who do not elect to receive a check will automatically receive an $80 credit on their September bill from Entergy.

The refund will go to all 421,000 Entergy customers as a direct result of closing litigation filed by the PSC that produced a historic $300 million settlement.

The settlement proceeds will go toward the one-time $80 refund to customers, protect against spikes in natural gas prices and to prevent a $180 annual rate increase in 2023 along with a moratorium on certain profits of the Entergy for four years.

Commissioner Brandon Presley

“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. 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,” Commissioner Brandon Presley said.

Entergy Mississippi customers who opt for an $80 check have from August 1st through August 17th to register using their “MyEntergy” account at for their refund.
