Bill Explanation

Fuel or Purchased Power Charge Electric or Energy Charge Storm Related Charges
This is the cost of fuel we use to generate electricity and the cost of electricity we sometimes purchase from other companies. This charge may go up and down as the cost of fuel changes. Entergy makes no profit on this and the charge is passed through to customers dollar-for-dollar as allowed by regulators. This is the cost to run equipment and facilities to deliver electricity to your home. These charges help us rebuild the infrastructure and equipment damaged by a big storm as soon as possible.
