The 30 Moments that Lit Up Our Year


Lists are popular during the holiday season. Naughty or nice, holiday wishes, Oprah’s favorite things, the best songs of the year, and the lists go on! Each one requires purposeful thought. Were you really, really good this year? How can you bring someone joy? Who has influenced our culture? What have we accomplished?

As we look back at Entergy Mississippi’s year, the answers to those questions are clearly revealed in the stories we’ve shared. We’ve torn sites down, built new facilities, saved customers money, highlighted our superheroes, prepared ourselves and helped you prepare for storms, celebrated milestones and supported our communities. Whew! That’s a lot…and there’s more! If our favorite moments of 2018 were a list of gifts we love to give, here’s what would be on it:   

Building Blocks
You may have heard, we’re building the utility of the future. We made a lot of progress toward that this year by investing in infrastructure and other ways that will help us get there.

People are at the heart of what we do. We have some amazing employees that work hard behind the scenes and in the field to help power life for our customers and our communities.

Cold Hard Cash and Save-ory Treats
Giving back is important to us. That means supporting initiatives that make our communities a better place to live and work and helping customers save money on their bills.

Safe-ty Gifts
Our work is dangerous and we want all our people to go home every day the same way they came to work. We also want to help customers stay safe too.

These are the moments that lit up our year. We hope they helped brighten your year, too. And, if you’re working on that other traditional list of the season – New Year’s resolutions –  we can help, especially if you’re plan is to save money, conserve energy or finally get your emergency preparedness plan together!  Drop by our newsroom, Facebook and Twitter throughout the year for tips on these topics and much more.
