Second Winter Storm in a Week Impacting Customers in Central, North Louisiana
Did you know that heating your home uses more energy than cooling it? While extreme cold weather is rare in our region, a deep cold snap will impact your energy usage and may impact your bill.
Entergy’s Louisiana storm team, now 3,600 strong, is continuing to assess damages to the electric system and restore power where it is safe to do so. Multiple winter storms brought damaging freezing rain and ice to the state.
Crews continued to make progress restoring power to customers in south Louisiana Wednesday as central and north Louisiana began seeing the impacts of a second winter storm in less than a week.
Action Requested Due to Demand Potentially Exceeding Available Generation
Entergy’s Louisiana storm crews are continuing to assess damage and restore power where it is safe to do so after a winter storm brought extremely cold temperatures, freezing rain and large amounts of ice accumulations to the state Sunday and throughout Monday.
Entergy’s Louisiana customers are asked to voluntarily reduce their electricity usage, especially between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. this evening.
