Entergy’s vision, “We Power Life,” means much more than just keeping the lights on and power safely flowing.
Entergy customers continue to receive threats from scammers, and we want you to be able to recognize and report any deceitful behavior so you don’t become a victim.
We know you want reliable and affordable power, clean energy, and improved customer and community relationships. I am pleased to report that Entergy New Orleans has made gains in all of these areas, and with the City Council’s leadership, we will be on track to accomplish even more.
Lonnie Hamilton has been driving boats all his life -- a skill that's handy in the Bayou State, where there's way more water than land. Hamilton is an Entergy lineman based in the New Orleans metro region, and unlike most linemen who drive service trucks, his vehicle of choice is an airboat. But as a recent incident proved, Hamilton's airboat can be useful beyond his Entergy duties.
As the storm moves slowly through our service territory, outage numbers will continue to fluctuate. While our number of customers affected remains fairly consistent, we have already restored over 188,000 customers.
A workforce of more than 3,900 Entergy scouts, line crews and contractors are continuing to perform damage assessments and restoration where it is safe to do so as Barry, which made landfall yesterday as a Category 1 hurricane, continues a northerly track through Louisiana.
Due to the accessibility challenges, it may take several days following landfall before power is restored to the majority of our customers.
Barry, which briefly became a Category 1 hurricane Saturday before being downgraded to a tropical storm, continues to crawl across Louisiana, delivering heavy rains, high winds, coastal flooding and power outages. A storm team of approximately 3,400 is continuing damage assessments and restoration where it is safe to do.
