Entergy Arkansas customers will receive a credit on their February electric bill because of changes in tax laws.

On Tuesday, company spokeswoman Brandy Hinkle explained what the credit is all about.

Hinkle said her November bill was for using 900 kilowatts but the January bill jumped to using 1,600 kilowatts because of cold weather, working from home and kids being home but the average customer will receive $3.85 credit.

On another subject, Hinkle was asked about the company’s policy to not discontinue service to customers who have not paid their bills during the pandemic.

She went on to encourage customers who are behind on their bills to contact the company and work out a payment plan so as not to get too far behind.
