Residential Security Deposits
Entergy Louisiana customers use electrical and/or gas service before paying for it. Each month’s bill reflects usage during the previous month. For this reason, new customers may be required to make a security deposit, which helps protect Entergy Louisiana and its customers from those who use electricity/gas and then leave without paying for it. Because such losses affect all of our customers, the security deposit helps us keep everyone’s costs down.
Deposit Requirements – Customers have the option to pay all or part of the initial deposit before the first bill, but the initial deposit must be paid in full by first bill due date.
Arrangements cannot be made on a billed initial deposit.
