Baton Rouge Natural Gas Infrastructure Replacement Program

Rate Impact

  • The estimated cost of $65 million, which includes the cost of the infrastructure replacement program and costs associated with local government-mandated projects in Baton Rouge, will be recovered through a 10-year rider on Entergy Louisiana gas customers' bills.
  • The estimated effect on rates for the first three years for a typical residential customer using 4 mcf (4,000 cubic feet) per month on a total bill of about $20, will result in a bill increase of $0.43 per month by the end of the first year, $1.28 per month by the end of the second year and $2.28 per month by the end of the third year, with an estimated 2 percent annual increase for the remaining years of the rider.
  • The estimated rate impacts for the first three years for a typical commercial customer using 10 mcf per month on a total bill of about $264, will result in a bill increase of $5.28 per month (or 1 percent) by the end of the first year, $15.82 per month in the second year, $28.55 per month in the third year and an estimated annual 2 percent increase for the remaining years of the rider.
  • Bill estimates do not reflect any customer savings from increased reliability as well as savings from reduced operating and maintenance costs and any potential lost and unaccounted for gas. Estimates include the cost of the gas infrastructure replacement program and any government-mandated projects up to $1.5 million annually.
  • Entergy Louisiana's residential natural gas rate currently is among the lowest of Louisiana’s investor-owned gas utilities.
