In the aftermath of Harvey’s devastation, Montgomery County and surrounding areas showed the resilience to overcome. Neighbors, families and businesses stood together and rebuilt, stronger than ever. A year later, that rebuilding continues. Entergy Texas directed $100,000 in Hurricane Harvey relief funds to Montgomery and Liberty Counties.
In the aftermath of Harvey’s devastation, Southeast Texas showed the resilience to overcome. Neighbors, families and businesses stood together and rebuilt, stronger than ever. A year later, that rebuilding continues. This is why on the first anniversary of Hurricane Harvey hitting the Lone Star State, Entergy Texas is giving $300,000 to local educators, local governments and nonprofit organizations to replace items that Harvey destroyed.
Even before the clouds passed, the rain ended and the final power outage was restored, Entergy employees came together to plan. First, Entergy worked to help customers and employees rebuild stronger communities. Entergy employees also worked to rebuild a stronger electric system. In the past year, Entergy Texas has taken steps to protect electric infrastructure, and improve restoration efforts following extreme weather.
The ‘brain of the electric grid’ marks another milestone in building the utility of the future.
Entergy has received the Edison Electric Institute's Emergency Assistance Award for its exceptional power restoration efforts following several nor’easters that impacted Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey in March 2018.
With slightly above-average activity predicted for the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, Entergy wants you to know it is ready to safely and quickly restore power should a storm strike our area.
