Arkansas Public Service Commission Plans to Appeal Federal Judge's Ruling

February 11, 2004 - Posted at 7:44 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Public Service Commission says state ratepayers won't have to foot the bill for higher production costs within Entergy Corporation while the PSC appeals a regulatory decision.

If the PSC loses the appeal, the costs will apply.

Also, the panel has begun an investigation into Entergy Arkansas' participation in the "system agreement" among subsidiaries in Entergy.  PSC Chairman Sandra Hochstetter says that agreement is at the heart of the adverse ruling against Entergy Arkansas and its ratepayers.  She says the pact allows Arkansas ratepayers to be held at a disadvantage.

The ruling was released Friday by Lawrence Brenner, an administrative law judge for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.  He said Entergy Arkansas would have to help pay for some of the higher production costs of other Entergy companies in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas.
