Louisiana residents are being hit with high energy bills


Louisiana residents are seeing a major increase in their energy bills this past month, some reaching hundreds of dollars while they are still trying to recover from Hurricane Ida. Residents of Lafitte are getting hit with high bills, some reaching thousands of dollars, even though no meter is installed to see how many kilowatts of energy a building uses. “I got a disconnect notice the other day for over $3100 for this building,” said Ray Griffin, a resident of Lafitte, “You lose everything you own, and then this there’s light at the end of the tunnel and finally almost a year after the storm, here comes Entergy and they cut the light off at the end of the tunnel.” High energy bills are hitting New Orleans too, as a 77-year-old resident in the Ninth Ward’s bill has now reached $800. Eva J. Francis has had trouble keeping up with her high energy bill. She said she use to pay around $200, and now her bill has reached $800. Even though she has been using energy-sufficient methods to help keep her bill from increasing, she still receives high energy bills. However, a recent person called in the show and has now donated $800 to Francis to help keep the power on in her house. For other customers receiving high energy bills, Entergy has created the “Energy Smart Program” for all customers which will have someone come to a residence for free and with permission to give solutions to help save money on your energy bill.
