ENERGY EMERGENCY DEFERRED BILLING PROGRAM

Entergy’s Energy Emergency Deferred Billing Program is a program that assists eligible pre-enrolled Louisiana customers when the Louisiana Public Service Commission declares energy emergency periods. Enrollment can take place at anytime and, if pre-enrolled in this program when an energy emergency is declared, a customer would only pay a part of the resulting bill over a period of 12 months.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The portion of the bill that will be deferred is the amount that is over and above your previous year’s total bill during that same time period (this amount must be at least $20). For example, if your current bill is $140 during an energy emergency period, and your bill for the same period last year was $80, the difference ($60) is divided and paid over a 12-month period.

WHO QUALIFIES?

  • A person whose income does not exceed one hundred and fifty (150) percent the poverty level as established by the federal government and who is sixty-five (65) years of age or older.
  • A person who receives any one of the following:  Food Stamps. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • A person whose sole income consists of Social Security payments.
  • A governmental entity determined by the Louisiana Public Service Commission as being a vital governmental entity that provides services, the absence of which could result in imminent peril to the public health, safety and welfare.
  • A registered Entergy Critical Care Customer

Currently eligible applicants in Louisiana may receive up to three (3) separate benefits per year depending on each applicant’s circumstances. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis with special attention given to households with members over 60 years of age, household members with disabilities and households with children age five and under. Applications are taken from the time funds become available until all funds are exhausted.

LIHEAP benefits are available in every parish in Louisiana. LIHEAP applicants must be able to provide proof of income for all household members, have a copy of all household members’ social security cards, a copy of the utility bill(s), and verification they reside at the address on the utility bill.
