Preparing for a storm is a challenge that Entergy New Orleans lineworkers train for year-round, but it takes a little different effort and resilience to restore power during a dual event.
No one gets through the tough times alone, particularly when faced with the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. It takes communities coming together for the betterment of all. At Entergy Texas, we are working to do our part.
Providing a helping hand to the community is an act of kindness Entergy employees take part in year-round, even in times of crisis.
The company launched two virtual hubs with information, tools and resources to help customers and small businesses navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our customers are friends, neighbors or family, and we are passionate about serving you and our communities, every step of the way.

Today, Josh is Entergy Mississippi’s construction manager, based in Jackson.
We are working to help customers and communities hurt by the financial hardship during COVID-19
The men and women of Entergy Mississippi are always here when our state needs us – and that is even more true in times like this. That is why in addition to providing safe, reliable and affordable electricity to those sheltering in place at home during the peak of a spring storm season, our people are also working on solutions to help our customers and communities hurt by the financial hardship brought about during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Entergy New Orleans launched a hub with links to local, state and federal resources for residential customers to access nonprofits, community food distributions, updated COVID-19 information and more.
The life of a lineworker is one of adventure, duty and love for family. It is also one that can, at times, include cold sandwiches and showers, up to 16-hour days bringing electricity back to disaster-stricken communities, and now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many added health precautions.
