Entergy Gulf States ordered to refund US$75M to Louisiana customers as result of ruling by U.S. FERC that company failed to keep costs of generating, transmitting electricity roughly the same for four states

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana , January 25, 2012 () – The Louisiana Public Service Commission has ordered Entergy Gulf States to refund $75 million to its 380,000 customers in the state.

The Advocate (http://bit.ly/z0Kufh ) reported that the refunds will total about $60 for residential users who use 1,400 kilowatt hours of electricity monthly. The PSC decided Wednesday that the refunds would be applied to bills in June, July, August and September.

The refunds are the result of a ruling by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that Entergy Corp. failed to keep the costs of generating and transmitting electricity roughly the same for the company's customers in four states the company serves.
