Arkansas Regulators Vow to Fight Entergy Cost Shift

February 5, 2004 - Posted at 7:34 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas utility regulators say they'll fight any shift of Entergy Corporation expenses from Louisiana to Arkansas.

In a case brought by Louisiana regulators, a federal judge is expected to rule soon on whether as much as $250 million a year currently paid by Louisiana customers should be charged to Entergy Arkansas customers.

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Judge Lawrence Brenner in August urged the parties to settle the case, but talks broke down.  His ruling will not be final until approved by the federal commission.

Arkansas Public Service Commission chair Sandra Hochstetter says the PSC remains outraged at the attempt to shift costs.  She says if Arkansas loses the decision, it will appeal as high as the U.S. Supreme Court.
