Meet LaShaina, a field engineer at Entergy Texas.
From finding yourself in a mess of mud in the middle of a Louisiana bayou to thawing out the door handle of your truck during an Arkansas ice storm, there are a wide range of challenges that Entergy lineworkers face during storm restoration.
Lineworkers are like celebrities when they roll in to restore power after a storm. In neighborhoods or on a lonely country road, there’s always someone who wants to say thanks, shake hands, offer a meal or ask for help. Hurricane Ida was no different.
Like most things these days, the material costs related to generating and delivering your power have gone up recently. While our customer rates are still below the U.S. average, Entergy Mississippi is taking real action to keep this and other inflationary business cost increases from making your power bill unaffordable.
Grants provided funding and support for broad-based initiatives ranging from disaster relief, education, workforce development, poverty solutions, the arts and community improvements in regions served by Entergy in Arkansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New York and Texas.
